Management and Monitoring Lupus pregnancy should be timed to coincide with a period of good disease control if at all possible. I started with plaquenil last year, yes it took almost 6 months to get a level in your body, it does help, trust me. I was on Prednisone 7.5 to 10 mg per day, had a bad flair up and I am on 40 mg per day, last Friday the dr.''s told me to go down by 5 mg per week, so from 40mg to 35 mg per day. I get really bad flare ups and prednisone 10 mg is the only thing that helps settle it. I have talked to my OB and she said to only take it when necessary so I'm doing that. I have taken it a handful of times over this pregnancy. Does anyone else have experience taking it while pregnant?
