sorry to hear you are in so much pain..pred is usually the gold standard for fast treatment of inflammation ( I love pred!) It is unusual that it did not work on you?? I'm sorry I don't know anything about
your type of arthritis but your meds are similar to mine. Have you tried Plaquenil? It is just like Yally said with trying and trying until you find the right combo, and it is so true about
having bad days, I have had my share, and they are so horrible and unpleasant. Maybe call your doctor's office and explain your situation and see what they say..
I hope you feel better soon.
