Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

is the prednisone helping?

Dr. David :

is this an autoimmune polyneuralgia?

Dr. David :

hello?

Dr. David :

if it is an autoimmune polyneuralgia, then other immune suppressing medications like methotrexate might help

Dr. David :

also nerve pain medications like neurontin or lyrica or elavil might help as well.

Dr. David :

have you tried lyrica or neurontin before?

Dr. David :

makes sure you take the prednisone with food in your stomach.

Dr. David :

the omeprazole is to help decrease stomach acid so the prednisone doesn't upset your stomach which it can often do.

Dr. David :

try to take the prednisone as early in the day as you can, as it can cause poor sleep.
