Hey TracyDawn. Sorry to hear that you had to go on Prednisone. I've been on Prednisone every since I was diagnosed. I've been on as low as 10mg of prednisone every other day. But since Jan. I was in a middle of a flare with nephritis flare too and they started by increasing my prednisone to 60mg a day for one week, then I was on 40mg a day for 1 month and now I've been on 30mg since March. It does stink because I've gain weight and have been a little unhappy about that plus the moon face but I can't be too unhappy because I feel 100% better. I guess you have to weigh your odds. They will lower your dose depending on how the lupus starts to respond. I still have increased protein in my urine so that's why I'm still on increased prednisone. Between the cellcept and the prednisone I'm hoping it will start working soon so I can avoid another cycle of cytoxan. As for the olay lotion good for you! :lol: I've been using the jergens lotion with the tanner and it's working but slowly. My arms are taking it better than my legs. Not turning orange though thank goodness . I didn't get the olay because it looked more orange to me than the jergens and I didn't want to turn orange. Any orange problems for you???? Well glad it's working!
