Ian, I’m not aware of a trial for steroids.

They are a standard treatment for a relapse and are prescribed as a short term (usually 3 days) high-dosage treatment, designed to kick-start the body’s own recovery.

There is usually a quick hit and a feeling of well-being, that soon subsides. The effects of the steroids will aid a recovery over the ensuing 6-8 weeks.

HI STUMBLER THANK YOU FOR REPLYING . I KNOW YOU GET STEROIDS AFTER A RELAPSE BUT THESE ONES ARE CALLED ALLOPREGNANOLONE . THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO REGENERATE THE CELLS IN YOUR BRAIN . IHEARD ABOUT IT IN THE NEWSPAPER EIGHT MONTHS AGO ….IAN G X.

My 3-day steroid treatment was cancelled yesterday because my Nitrate levels are too high. What a pain in the ass. Anybody had the same problems?
