Reply To: Prednisolone making CIDP much worse….?

Thanks GH, really helpful. Yes – it would be odd if the steroids made it worse but I cant help feeling that way since I am weaker after starting on steroids than before the treatment (and it is difficult to know if the progression has been arrested – since the neurologist now thinks that the prednisone has given me muscle atrophy. The plan for treatment once off steroids is steroid sparing drugs – azathioprine which I am already on as well as the steroids at 100 mg a day.

Any experience about pulsed steroid therapy? I read it has less side effects

Many thanks
