Resistant Pericarditis
Posted By Wendy, 8/4/98 on August 04, 1998 at 21:47:24:







I am a 33 year old female and have had pericarditis since November, 1997 as a result of an ASD repair in mid- October, 1997.  I am being treated with a combination of prednisone and colchicine.  My question  - is there any other treatment/medications/
available to treat resistant pericarditis?  I had gotten off of prednisone for
about a month and a half and been down to .3mg of colchicine, only to have a relapse.  I now seem to be having a difficult time reducing the prednisone dosage.  Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you!.
