Anybody know any therapy/info besides surgery for pericarditis resistant to prednisone? I seem to have the chronic type that doesn't respond to prednisone but responded to ibuprofen in the past.

Hello and welcome to HealingWell.  I am sorry to hear of your problems but wondering what the medical community is prescribing for people that do not respond to prednisone ?
Any of our members out there have ideas for our new member?  Remember we are peers and not physicians so please do keep advocating for yourself with your Drs.
I am so glad to meet you and hope you stick with us.
