    Hi Reddy


    For a few years of my MS I took a week of steriods once a year.  It worked well for me.  About 5 years in my doc swtched me to 3 to 5 days each month otherwise known as Pulse steriods that Lisa mentioned.  That menthod did not work as well for me.  Yes my energy/stamina and strength improved but I found myself "craving" the next treatment every 3 weeks.  I have also heard that some people can't make a move on a daily basis without their steroids (scary).  I haven't even mentioned the weight gain that comes with steroids (food never tasted so good).  So consider carefully.   I have since only used steriods when absolutely needed. Good Luck
