I am just wondering how often folks that have done steroids have done them.
Iv and or oral?
How often have you done them in say a year?
How many milligrams ?
How many days?
Did you do a taper afterwards and for how long?
Have you done "Pulse Steroids"?
Finally would you do it again or would it depend on the Sx you are trying to control.
I have had some really bad Sx this year and up to now have not been able to find a control method that works. Yesterday there was a student nurse working in the Infusion suite and she mentioned to her mentor that my BP was already REALLY high and should they be giving me steroids? The charge nurse told her "just wait you wont believe what happens to Gary BP it will go DOWN.". As it goes well into the stroke zone they are reluctant to use many mainstream BP meds as it will bottom out.
Thanks everyone just some things I have been wondering about at 2 o'clock in the morning!!
