Hi Everyone, Thanks for the good information on quilones and medrol. I am taking methylpredisolone and I don't have as bad a reaction, as happens with prednisone. They gave it to me during a flare, by injection. Last night at the ER, I was diagnosed with pneumonia. The doctor prescribed azirothmycin and I took two there and one today. It seems to be working, but I am still pretty congested, a lot of coughing and just don't feel well. The information on quilones and medrol is important, thank you. I am waiting for a call back from my doctor. Not sure whether I should take the medrol with this. The ER doctor, after she got the x-ray back, which showed left lower lobe "patchy airspace opacity" and "suspicious for infectious pneumonia" -- was not interested, in what she mistakenly understood was artheritis. I explained what GCA was and that I was worried about the pain in my neck, that possibly one of the aneuryisms might have moved or was bleeding, which leads to stroke. "No" she had "seen many pre-stroke patients" and I wasn't "pre-stroke". ? I wasn't feeling well. I let it go -- for now. She seemed to think, that the neck pain was part of pneumonia -- -- ? The information on quilones and medrol is appreciated. I am going to look on the internet for medrol and azithromycin, and wait for my doctor, before taking the medrol. really not feeling well and don't want any more -- - reactions or pain. Thank you for the replies. all my best, and wishing everyone health. Whittlesey
