I can take it with food, but I have to take it three times a day....I think it also makes me spacy and hallucinate. I spent about an hour yesterday looking at the ceiling watching little black lines wriggle all over...weird (couls also be the pred.).
I have had this flare up for a month now, with no change. How long should I wait until I tell the doctor I want something more drastic in meds if it will take the pain away. I mean he has extended the time that I am on the high dose of prednisone and now added Flagyl. I have been in pain since Labor day with no relief. My next appt is at the end of the month. The side effects from these meds are not fun. I'm sure the stronger meds are not fun either, but maybe they would provide some relief from the flare up.
