so tonight I realized Ive been lieing to myself. I started 40mg of pred and humira in august. I started going off pred in october and the d came and has not gone away. in the beginning of November the gi upped me back to 10mg a day of pred for 30days then back to 5 for 30days which will be up the 29th of this month. To me the humira is not working. Thought it was but must be the pred. I'm calling the gi tomorrow. What do you think the next step is? Ive only been on pred imuran and humira.
