Reply To: Taking Prednisone
I took prednisone for about a year. The dosage was tapered down over that time. At the same time I was taking mycophenolate mofetil, an immune suppressant. The latter does not take effect immediately, which is why they are taken together. By the time the prednisone has been reduced to low doses, the mm will be established. After going off the prednisone I stayed on the initial dosage of mm for about a year, then started reducing the dosage on it as well. A year or so later I was off the mm and since have taken no drugs related to my neuropathy.
I never had side effects from either drug.
