Reply To: New working diagnosis of CIDP, starting pred
Ive been on Prednisone for quite a while at different strengths from 10 to 120 mg a day. I dont think it helps much but the neuro throws higher doses at my cidp when the ivig isnt working as well as usual. At 10-20 mg+ my vision gets blurry, and right now my sleeping hours and patterns are horrible, have gotten increased eye pressure so Im on glaucoma meds and now have drug induced diabetes. We are on another taper down schedule I hope we can stick with.
If it works for you with minimal effects, great, but be aware it can be problematic. Oh, yeah, Im also up about 30 lbs and with the cidp walking/balance issues, exercise is kind of limited to get the weight off.
