So, I'm dealing with a major flare but my doctor doesn't like me on steroids (like medrol and prednisone). He currently has me on Medrol until I see him in a week and then said we were going to discuss other meds besides steroids. Any thoughts on what they could be? I'm currently maxed on Plaquenil, Mobic and Cholchicine along with other meds. I had been feeling better on the Medrol dose packs but as soon as I taper down I slide back into the flare. I'm 32 with borderline osteoporosis so I guess that may be the reason against the steroids.
