Yes, prednisone is a treatment for CIDP. However, you should still plan to see a neurologist who has experience treating CIDP to confirm the diagnosis and to develop a long-term treatment plan. I can’t say what the best treatment would be for you, but my experience was that the neurologist did not use prednisone indefinitely because of its side effects. My dosage was tepered down slowly from its initial dose to zero in about a year.
