Bryan, for me, immune suppression (following my primary treatments) was a two-part treatment. I started on prednisone, but this is not intended for long-term use because of side effects. I also was prescribed mycophenolate mofetil (Cellcept). The latter does not take effect right away, so I continued it at full strength while the prednisone was tapered down to zero over the course of about a year. After several months without prednisone and no signs of relapse, the mycophenolate was tapered down. Eventually, I was off the mycophenolate altogether and I now take nothing for my neuropathy.
