Swedish, 60. I have had PMR/GCA for about 5 years. It has been a struggle almost every day Three years ago I tried Methotrexate for six weeks. Terrible. Then I tried Azatioprin för about 10 days and had to stop. Now I have a new rheumatologist and he suggested I should try Cellcept.
When I read what you wright PMRpro I understand that I have reducing Prednisolon to fast from the beginning. I started at 50 mg. It took me four years to come below ten . Now I take 8,75 mg since november but am very tired and have some pain. Late summer I went down to 7,5 but nothing was good enough for my old doktor. He told me that my pain was something else and that I should enjoy life! Well, that was enough for me
About Cellcept. I really don,t want to take it.If anyone of you have tried please tell me about it. Doktor said that if i does not work I should stay on 8,75 for a long time.
I am so happy about this list. It is not easy to wright in english but I read everything.
