d q,

All is going as good as I expected on the home front. My fathers issue is terminal, so we just wait…

To your questions…Methylprednisone is ONLY taken during an acute attack. As soon as the attack starts, you start the 6 pill (day 1) dose. I would normally take 4 as soon as I felt pain, then the remaining 2 about 8 hours later. Then 5 the next day, then 4, then 3 and so on until you are done in 6 days. Usually after the first day, the pain is gone but you MUST finish the 6 day pack.

I took Colchincine in conjunction with the Z-pack and Naproxen. My dose was 0.6 mgs. I would take 2 to start, then 2 more 8 hours later. That was my plan and it worked for me. Consult your Rhuemotologist of course, before you start this plan.
