Hey guys, just thought I would update as to my treatment. I'm currently down to 35 mg of prednisone and am starting 50 mg of Imuran tonight, will be up to 100 mg in a week. The only side effects I've experienced with the pred are increased appetite (since I'm feeling good!) and consuquently weight gain and the whole moon face thing but I don't mind too much. I feel very lucky that's all I've had (a few mood swings as well but what can you do). I'll be getting blood tests this week and next and then once a month.
I'm feeling good right now! Able to eat what I want within reason and down to 2-3 reasonably normal BMs a day. I'm feeling very positive and just hoping I have success with imuran and am able to stay feeling well.
I hope everyone else is having a good week and Happy Holidays!!
