I met my rheumatologist yesterday and really like him.
He started me on 20mg of Leflunomide. I don't see that medication very often on the board. Does anyone else take it?
He also gave me 15 days of prednisone (15mg for 5 days, then 10mg, then 5mg). I felt really good early today with the prednisone but guess it was short lived because now I'm tired and achy this afternoon.
He said he wants to give the Leflunomide 3 months to see if it is going to work.
It's a little depressing to think this is basically how I'll be feeling for the foreseeable future but I suppose it is what it is and I'll need to adjust, mentally.
