Day 9 the prednisone finally kicked in and she s in her happy place playing...
Yahoo!!!! Enjoy the gift of today - hopefully it lasts!
How many mgs
She's on 20mg of Mtx. And 250mg x2 naproxen. During a flare she goes on 25mg until the flare is over... Averages 8 days. Sometimes they titrate her down over 3 week period. Other times ( Like this one) as long as its under 2 weeks they said she can stop cold turkey.
Problem is that she's been on steroids most of the summer bc as soon as she comes off- it flares. We go back Thursday to come up with a plan ( I'm thinking biologics) bc high doses of steroids full time on top the other drugs is not an option... :(
What are the side affects of steroids.
Amen, enjoy the GREAT DAYS
Xxxxxxx Yzzzzzz, I sent you a PM
Xxxxxxx Yzzzzzz it's probably time for the biologic route... Best wishes Hun:(. Hoping she gets real relief soon!
Yay!!! Your pic looks like somewhere in Texas :)
Praying for her.
Monique Nicole- the side effects of steroids can vary from person to person and also the doses, and length of time... Bone issues, weight gain, sleep and emotional issues...adrenal issues too name a few. There are numerous articles on Pub Med.
She is actually way North of there!:)
Yep like Canada North ;)
Thank you Kerri. Bless you!
