Myositis varies tremendously from patient to patient, and no one treatment works for everyone. Your physician may use a combination of drugs to treat you, or change medications over time. It is extremely important that you communicate well with your doctor about your treatment and any side effects.
An important part of your treatment will be the regular practice of an exercise program that works for you, no matter what your level of ability or weakness. Talk with your physician about supplements that are sometimes recommended for muscle strength.
