5.Later steroid (omnacartil) was used and reduced medicine from 20mg to 5mg for more than 2 months.

she improved in weight from 37kg to 42kg and no fever.

Initial medicines are

SM.75mg vial daily one for 8 weeks

2.Ethide for 10 weeks

3.Ciplox-500 for 10 weeks

4. Steroid omnacartil for from 10-10 to 5-5.

5.Razo-d for supressing the fastro troubles

All the medicinnes were stopped on 1/9/08.

On 23rd she got high fever and medcines are started.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
