I am finally down to 5 mg of prednisone and have gone off entocort (I can't even remember how that happened) and wanted to find out how much steroid is absorbed into the bloodstream. I feel that maybe I should be taking a maintainance med for the crohn's, but the arthritis is just sitting on the edge, waiting to spring out. I am in the process of switching GI docs and used to get samples (otherwise 75.00 a month with ins.) I just wanted some facts to discuss this with him. Maybe I would be better off to stay on pred. The rheumy told me to get to 5 and I could stay on that. Cheers
