If possible, you should see a rheumatologist, as there are other drugs available for arthritis. Ask your GP to refer you to one, if you have a medical aid or otherwise ask at outpatients for a referral. Some people do take predisone longterm and sometimes this is all that helps. One can get a vaccination against shingles and you can take something like Moducare to stimulate your immune system.
