Please note that this list is only partial – it now seems at least 70 drugs that can cause DILE or DIL, drug-induced lupus erythematosus seinAtenolol ( Tenormin), captopril (Capoten) CarbamazepinChlorpromazine HCl (Thorazine), clonidine HCl (Catapres), danazol (Danocrine), diclofenac (Cataflam, Voltaren), disopyramide (Norpace) Ethosuximide (Zarontin) Gold VerbindungenGriseofulvinHydralazine HCl (apresoline) ibuprofen interferon alfaIsoniazid (Laniazid, Nydrazid) labetalol HCl (Normodyne, Trandate) leuprolide acetate (Lupron) levodopa (Dopar, Larodopa) LithiumcarbonatLovastatin (Mevacor), mephenytoin (Mesantoin), methyldopa (Aldomet), methysergide maleate (Sansert) Minoxidil (Loniten, Rogaine), nalidixic acid (Neggram), nitrofurantoin (Furadantin, Macrobid, Macrodantin) Oral KontrazeptivaPenicillamin (Cuprimine, DEPEN) PenicillinPhenelzinsulfat (Nardil), phenytoin (Dilantin), prazosin (Minipress) Primidone (Mysoline) Procainamide HCl (Procan, pronestyl) Promethazine HCl (Anergan, Phenergan) PropylthiouracilPsoralenChinidinSpironolacton (Aldactone) StreptomycinsulfatSulindac (Clinoril), sulfasalazine (Azulfidine) TetracyclineThioridazine HCl (Mellaril), timolol maleate (Betimol, Timoptic), tolazamide (Tolinase) tolmetin sodium (Tolectin) trimethadione (Tridione) One thing is I happened to notice that several drugs used to treat Parkinson’s disease to treat in this list. And the problem is that, although lupus is not curable, in DILE, the symptoms are reversible when the medication is discontinued. Of course, in PD, this might not be possible, the most common problems are caused by only a handful above.
