Weak and tired.


I am fed up with being weak and tired. Over the years of having this awful disease, I’ve tried steroids many times but it has always been Methlprednisolone, which is now losing effect.

Has anyone tried a different type and was it successful?

long term use of prednisolone is not reccomened by doctors where I live.

maybe try exercise to give yourself some more energy. if not maybe some vitamins that a doctor would reccomend or a nutritionist that could help with the swelling as this is the main purpose of prednisolone.

best of luck

@johns , as mentioned above, Methylprednisolone is prescribed to address the inflammation, which causes a relapse. It would also help you recover from the effects of that relapse over the next few weeks.

It wouldn’t address your weakness or tiredness. Moderate and frequent exercise is recommended.
