I was diagnosed with Takasayu's Arteritis six years ago today. I have been on a number of different immunosuppressants over the years and either I haven't been able to tolerate them or they haven't controlled the disease progression. When I went to the Cambridge support group meeting recently the doctor said their aim was to have people in remission within 2-3 years which seemed pretty optimistic to me! Has anyone achieved long term remission? There's also talk about 'burn out' with TAK-has anyone experienced this? I feel I might be on medication for while yet!
