@Tahli Dex is a stronger version of steroid, there are lots of ladies in my immune group on it. He said no to me when I asked for it. You def need to take caltrate and magnesium while on it. You would switch to pred before 12 weeks as it crosses the placenta.
There has been a lot of talk in our immune group about diabex/metformin in the last couple of days. Apparently a cpl of dr's overseas are prescribing it with cycles. Dr m prescribed it for me while I was on pred to help with sugar levels. Which is a good thing when on the roids!
He normally does 500ml intralipids, but I think he had mentioned Lynne possibly doing 2x200ml for you instead of you flying up?
Yes dr m's cost for intralipids is $650, I have full phi which covers the bed cost. If you were doing it on the weekend (most common time) you arrive at 2pm and leave about 10.30/11pm or stay overnight- I live close so leave. You can use the time when he comes in to ask questions and get scripts too, he's usually there twice for about 5-10mins each time.
