Answer

See the list below:

  • TMP-SMZ 160/800 mg 3 times weekly (typically Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays) for Pneumocystisjiroveci pneumonia prophylaxis; may be continued during remission to help prevent flares

  • Plasma exchange for patients with rapidly progressive renal disease (Cr >5.65mg/dL) and/or diffuse alveolar hemorrhage
