I think the decision is different for each person. I would not consider it if the first line treatments were helping me improve. I got worse on the prednisone, no remarkable response from 5 PE’s and ivig is only slowing the progression. So i am thinking of asking to try an immunosppressant with the least side effects first.
I guess that’s what makes the disease so hard to treat—what works to “reboot” ones immune system, hardly effects anothers.
