azathioprine was helpful (a little tiny bit) when I took it a couple of years ago. However, when they upped the dose, I became so nauseous on it. I was dry heaving every morning. I started taking ginger tablets and that worked to settle me down. but, then eventually I had to come off of it due to blood issues.
Prednisone is my friend. It worked the best to allay my symptoms. HOwever, I didnt want to be on it long term due to side effects... for me it was the constant hunger and moon face. I looked like a freak. I wouldnt let anyone take my photo for over 6 weeks until I stopped the drug and thankfully went back to normal.
