I did 3 months on cellcept but it was the combo of 200mg of Imuran and 20mg of prednisone that seemed to work wonders. I am still on 20mg prednisone and 150mg Imuran. I really didn't enjoy cellcept but others swear by it. Finding the right drug for you is what is important. I may have implied prednisone alone was my miracle but I didn't mean to I am having a flare and not expressing myself as well as I would like when I am tired. but the prednisone alone stopped the progression it was just adding Imuran at a higher dose that pushed the symptoms back and got my life back to normal. I would have done better faster if we had been willing to go with a higher dose of prednisone. my doctors and I know that but prednisone is a nasty drug to depend on completely because of what it does to our bones.
