Would it be o.k to just stop taking Mycophenolate without tapering? I take it for lupus?

Lupus is a silent killer. The medications for Lupus have serious side effects and can cause death if stopped without tapering. Not tapering Prednisone cause Adrenal gland crisis and can cause death. I have had to stop my Mycophenolate twice for severe viral infections that I just couldn't get over because my immune system was over suppressed, you should never stop your medication without consulting your DR 1st. Why do you want to stop it? Lupus never goes away, it is a life time disease that requires multiple medications. There are clinics that can help with the cost of the meds.
