jgl, drug treatment doesn’t just come down to a choice between steroids or immunosuppressants. The steroids are not advised for long term use, so are tapered down over time. Mycophenolate mofetil does not have an immediate effect, so takes some time to work. That is why I started on both. The prednisone was tapered down to zero over about a year, and I am still on the mycophenolate. I have had no noticeable side effects from either.
