Should I Take My Medrol/ Prednisone Dose Pack?

Should I Take My Medrol/ Prednisone Dose Pack?

My doctor put me on another prednisone dose pack for six days. I have significant inflammation in my joints and it is very difficult for me to walk and get around. I recently started plaquenil and I’ve been in a flair for quite some time. My question is what is the point of taking a short term Dose of prednisone when the inflammation will only return And most likely I will feel worse when it does.

For those of you that added this drug to your regimen, how many mg are you on, 50mg, 100mg and how has it helped you that Plaquenil alone didn’t do, my very close girlfriend is really struggling and I told her I would post this and hopefully get some answers for her. Plaquenil just isn’t helping with rashes, aches and pains, etc, thank you all so much, she is my sister from another mother, lol, we are close

Steroids And Lupus

Please let me know whether you used Prednisone and are now using something non steroidal for the pain. Does CBD oil help.
Thank you

Yes, I am on prednisone. My arms get bruised very easily. I actually ate 2 gummy bears and they relaxed me so much. A friend sent them to me. No. Carolina has not legalized it.
