Recently diagnosed


I was diagnosed just this week. My symptoms started in Dec 2016 and gradually worsened. I mainly had problems with balance and ataxia. MRI showed typical patterns of CLIPPERS.
MRI and symptoms rapidly improved when on IV steroids (5x1000mg).

My doctor wants to taper steroids for 3 months and try to introduce azathioprine in the meantime. After that he wants me to be on azathioprine without any further steroids.

Anyone has experience with this medication?

Thanks so much
