Lori, I wouldn’t think the way you responded to the prednisone would be indicative of the other immunosuppressants.. but of course who knows!?!? Prednisone is pretty notorious for adverse side effects and I know from what i’ve read some motor neuropathies can be worsened by steroids, but I would imagine that the other immunosuppresants would still be effective, though I have not researched that specifically.. I know prednisone has TONS Of side effects, but from what I am aware of the immunosuppresants main side effects are, well you get sick easier.. I think nausea maybe. but like I said I haven’t researched them enough yet.. Hopefully the IVIG or PE will kick in and that will be that! 🙂 It is so strange how this all works!! Good luck!!!
