Discussions that mention prednisone

Arthritis board


Hi,

I am on humira and have no complaints i also take prednisone only 5mg and now that I am on Glaucosimine as well I am like brand new and can soon stop the prednisone. I found that I had more flare ups when on methx than when I was on nothing. I didn't like methx and its side affects are far worse than the humira's. You have to try everything to find the right combination for you. Unfortunately the body gets used to things so you have to change sometimes.

Good luck
Kind regards

I have been on Humira since June of 2006. It has made a major difference in my life. I could barely walk, couldn't grasp anything, was always tired, no energy. Now.....life is great!!!! It enabled me to get off all of my other meds (prednisone, methotrexate). I don't even take pain meds these days. I just hope it keeps on working and that I don't encounter any of the bad side effects. So far so good.

I don't remember how long it took to take effect, but I know it wasn't long. Hang in there and give it some time and I hope it does as well for you.
