It took about 6 months to start to have any noticeable benefit but the benefits, in my case, have been incredible. I had been on 15 mg of predisinole steroids for well over 10 years as a maintenance dose. I am now off steroids altogether, under normal circumstances, and have lost over 3 stones in weight which has also benefitted other health issues.. I am doing things that I hadn't been able to do for over 10 years.

This can only be administrated by certain hospitals which means I have to travel a 40 mile round trip every 4 weeks. I have 600mg in 2 injections, it is a bit of a bind but has made such a difference to my life. I am off steroids, reduced my nebuliser use, lost weight and am able to walk so much further, as long as I take my time.
