Infusion Therapy for Lupus
Turn to IDYLLIC Infusion Therapy Center for infusion therapy tailored to lupus patients. Lupus, also known as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), is a chronic autoimmune disease that affects the immune system and can cause widespread inflammation throughout the body. Infusion therapy is an effective treatment option for managing lupus symptoms and controlling the disease.
Lupus is a complex condition that can present with a range of symptoms, including joint pain, skin rashes, fatigue, and even involvement of vital organs such as the kidneys (known as lupus nephritis). Oral medications are often the first line of treatment for lupus, but some patients may not adequately respond to or tolerate these medications. In such cases, infusion therapy becomes a crucial alternative.
That’s where IDYLLIC Infusion Therapy Center comes in! We offer BENLYSTA ® (belimumab) and SAPHNELO ® (onifrolumab) infusions to help you manage lupus symptoms and, most importantly, live a pain-free life. Get in touch with one of our certified specialists to learn more!
How Does IV Infusion Therapy for Lupus Work?
IV infusion therapy involves delivering medications directly into the bloodstream through an intravenous line. For lupus patients, this method allows for the administration of high-dose medications that may not be tolerable through oral treatment. The medications used in infusion therapy target specific components of the immune system to alleviate symptoms and reduce inflammation.
Infusion therapy for lupus often involves the use of biological drugs, such as BENLYSTA ® (belimumab) and SAPHNELO ® (onifrolumab), which are derived from living organisms and designed to target specific immune system molecules. These medications can help suppress the overactive immune response seen in lupus and reduce the frequency and severity of flares.

Lupus Infusion Side Effects
While infusion therapy for lupus is generally safe and well-tolerated, it’s important to be aware of potential side effects.
