I may be in the minority, but I've found over the last few years that Medrol doesn't work well enough for me when I'm in a major flare. The first two days, with the bigger dose does make a difference, but by tapering it off, I get stuck mid-flare. Not worse, but not better either. As much as I hate it, when I'm in a bad flare, the only thing that helps me is prednisone, 40mg to start. I SO wish I was more like those of you who feel so much better with Medrol!!
Lupus, you have no chance!
