Reply To: New Reluctant CIDP Member/Relapse?
I didn’t start an immunosuppresant until I had started recovery. Mine (mycophenolate mofetil) takes a few months to reach full effect. I have not had azathioprene (Imuran), but have read that it has a similar limitation.
I suggest you read this summary of treatments thoroughly and discuss them with your neurologist.
Keep in mind that early treatment during the active phase, when you are getting weaker, generally leads to a better recovery
