I am recently diagnosed with aih. Have been on prednisone 40 mg for 10 days, then 40 mg for 5 weeks. GI doc wants to start me on 6mp, and reduce the pred to 20 mg at this time. From what ive seen on line this is a bit unusual. Got all these instructions at end of visit so I have not called doc to ask why. He handed me the rx and without telling me what it was, just that I should be especially alert for pancreatic pain or discomfort, and call immediately if it occurs.
I feel stupid for not discussing w/ doc at the time!, but I trusted. Now I think I need a new doc.
