Belimumab is a medication used for the treatment of systemic lupus erythematosus. It works by decreasing the activity of a certain type of cell in the immune system so the body’s overall autoimmune response is lowered. It is administered through an intravenous (IV) infusion.
Advice & Tips:
Awesome medicine. Cleared upy rashes in a heart beat and gave me all my energy back!!! i am only stopping temporarily due to hip surgery complications!!!!
Burden due to time taken off work for the treatment-plan on at least 2-3 hours for infusion-- but, well worth it!!!
But, very expensive. My insurance covered it all-- but it costs aprox 15,000 and that's what my insurance actually paid too
