Progress Update: PILLS! Back on Prednisone

multiple sclerosis ms medication medicine pills

Yup… Just when I thought I was going to be done with the Prednisone for a while I’m right back on it… Obviously I tapered off too quick and started experiencing withdrawal symptoms along with a flare up of MS symptoms… Got some more Prednisone and immediately took 40mg after getting home from the pharmacy. Two hours later I felt a bit of energy and a lessening of aches and pain. By the next day My aches and pain were gone, head ache was gone, vision was better, no nausea, and full of energy…

Wow… Talk about addictions and dependencies… So looks like I will be on this medictaion for a long, long time… That might even be a bit of an understatement…

Anyways, my MS symptoms haven’t cleared up yet but that will more then likely take a while. Still don’t have the best control of my left leg or hand and my leg is still a little weak… Tingling in my left hand is not as bad but still there. Vision did clear up a lot once I took the Prednisone but really that’s about it… Just got to be patient as always. I’ll keep you posted!

    How much do you pay for Rx? Are you on medi-cal or do you have private insurance?

    I have Kaiser through my dad's work still (till I'm 26) so my RX is usually between $12 and $22 depending on the medication.
