After 18 months, C.M.’s hydralazine dose is 50 mg three times daily, and her BP is at goal. She now complains of joint pain in both her right and left hands, which extends to the wrists, and generalized weakness with frequent fevers. Laboratory findings for C.M. showed a positive antinuclear antibodies test (diffuse), a white blood cell count of 3,500/?L, and an erythrocyte sedimentation rate of 45 mm/hour, and she is diagnosed with drug-induced lupus. How should this be managed?
