We went off the steroid since the effect wasn't good enough (IMO) to outweigh the risks associated with long term use. She was taking a pill every other day. Now she gets Atopica daily.

She is much much better on the Atopica than she was on the steriods. Without Atopica, she literally is scratching and licking constantly - to the point where she wakes me up at night with it. On Atopica, her symptoms have been lessening more and more, she's been on it about 2 months now.

Thanks roxy Although money wise its going to be tough atopica may be the way to go. I will have to keep looking for the cheapest place to buy it.
