took me 5months then 2 months of taper but i took my last pill the 31st. im feelin ok, my other issues bother me more then my CD now. i think at my next GI appt, this month, im going to ask to come off remicade and onto humira. the remicade is working but my neuro thinks its causing my ms like symptoms. im kind of scared to bring it up.
 
so anyhow yay for me im off the evil pred!

I am hoping to come off of pred soon. I started Imuran two weeks ago and am on 30 mg of pred a day. The insomnia and shaking are bothering me. Glad you were able to stop taking it.
