There are really not too many options for this disease, compared to some. One question for the doc is to hear his/her philosophy on whether to hit it hard first with big doses or start small, and build up. I have mixed feelings and so do they. The Pred, for example, low and build up, or hit it hard and taper for a long time? If you need to get on another drug, like the 6mp, it takes time. The testing for is can be 2 weeks, and that is a long time if you are in a flare. Make sure the doc is proactive, and does the enzyme test for it now, just in case.
BYW, Cottonele, with aloe and E is the paper I buy by the gross... Splurge, this is no time for one-ply
