good question.... i always seem to get a teeny bit better the first week or 2 of pred then go back to square one and it does nothign for me.
so far it seems that no meds do anything for me.
i was in a flare for year and half on eveyrthing you can think of and nothing worked. then one day it was gone completely.
now 6 months later, its back. darn it!!!!
and no meds are doing anything for me.
of course i will stay on them and see what happens. but, it seems im getting worse, not better.
and of course, feeling like crap and not getting better puts one in a crap mood which in turns makes everything crap. viscous circle.
