Good evening. I couldnt understand your question here. But Lupus does affect the central nervous system in various ways. It can either cause clot deposition or it can cause inflammation of the blood vessels there. If you are experiencing falling on either side or loss of memory or hallucinations , you need to get an MRI brain done. You will need a slightly different therapy for the same. As of imuran causing side effects on the liver, it is better to stop it for a while. You should get all the antibody work up done for Hepatitis B because to start or change any drug therapy it is mandatory to rule it out. Hope the information was useful
