i have been taking 6mp for appx 5 months now and im on 100mg, i was taking pred until about june 1st then i had completely tapered off of it. The past 3 weeks i have been having i guess mini-flares but now they are starting to get worse. I remember i was taking about 2.5mg's of pred for 3 weeks and i felt amazing but i knew i had to get off of it. Mainly my question is how bad is 2.5mg of prednisone considering we are usually prescribed 40mg and then taper. I also want to try going to 150mg of 6mp, im 6' 180lbs.... for a while i felt decent on the 6mp alone but lately ive started to flare and switch between C&D.

Hi You could try to increase your 6mp if your GI thinks that would help. Your right about 2.5 being better then 40 mg's of pred. Hope you start feeling better soon. lol gail
