I just posted this above on a thread called Big dose of prednisone or something like that.
I have had Prednisone 4 times since my diagnosis.
Only once did I take that horrible long oral treatment. It was barbaric and never again.
I am now in another flare, taking 3 days of 1 hour IV solumedrol infusions at the out pt at the hospital.
i insisted no other way. My neuro was fine with it as none of the home health providers will infuse at home any more, they say.
I did have a good result from the oral, which i did complete like a good patient, and I am having a good result on day 2 of the IV.
Just my experience.
I was told to stay out of direct sun as this drug makes you sensitive to sunlight; sunburn, sunblock, hat, shirt, sit in shade, etc,
maybe clarify with pharmacist or ask md about IV?
