I've been tapering down on the prednisone in hopes the Methotrexate kicks in here soon.
Well I'm down to 20mg and I started not feeling well. My joint pain has kicked up and
I'm going to the bathroom more.
Next week I'm suppose to go down to 15mg and
I just don't think I will be able to if the Methortexate hasn't kicked in yet. This week
will only be my 4th injection of it. I wonder if I should call my GI Monday and let him
know that I'm not going to be able to tolerate going down to 15mg????? I know
he is sick of hearing from me. I think we have talked every week since this flare
started the beginning of May.
Living with Crohn's Disease since Jan./2000 but had a few years prior
I'm a true Crohnie with IBS too
Meds I have tried: Too many to list- LOL
Meds currently on: Prednisone 20mg tapering
Methotrexate injections once a week 25mg
Folic Acid 5mg once a week
