In brief: If possible
Certain drugs can affect lupus so if there is a choice it may be prudent to avoid three drugs however depending on your circumstance there may not be other options.
If you must take a drug associated with lupus be vigilant in reporting any joint pains, fever, or unusual symptoms to your doctor.
