Which Is Safer For Long Term Use, Methotrexate Or Benlysta?

Which Is Safer For Long Term Use, Methotrexate Or Benlysta?

I’m concerned about serious long term ramifications from use of either of these medications, but right now they are a necessary evil. I’m not looking for common AE’s, I’m looking for serious AE’s associated with long term use (PML, malignancies, serious infections, liver & renal impairment, etc). Thank you!
