My GI doc just visited and is releasing me today. He has me on 60mg Prednisone in the hospital, will reduce that to 25mg at home, and have me take the Pentasa until the blood test on the Imuran acceptance comes back. Hopefully I can get off the steroid quickly, as it really packed the weight on in the past. Also, I travel a lot for work, should this be a problem on these meds? Thanks for all the posts and info.
