Hi,
I'm back after several months of absence. I hope you guys remember me. tongue
I"m down to 10mg of prednisone. The last few months has been the worst of my life, I do believe. I've had personal problems and with the withdrawl symptoms, I could barely function (seriously). I see the hepatologist on Monday for the first time. I cannot take Imuran so we will be discussing other alternatives to Imuran. I'm wondering if anyone has had success with anything besides Imuran after the wean??? I've heard the last 10mg are the worst when it comes to the tapering.  Anyone with experience tapering from 10 down?
 
I hope to hear from some of your all. Hope all is well with your life and souls.

Welcome back Judy, You probably don't know me as I just joined a couple of months ago. But I have read some of your posts. Just wanted to say hello. How did your appointment go today. I don't know anything about the 2 meds that you spoke of maybe someone else does. Take care.............Pink Grandma

Hi Judy, I too am findind 10-mg Prednisone hard. I have been prescribed Lexapro to ease the depression and I have probably told you I take CellCept instead of Imuran. I have my fingers crossed that I'll be down to 9mg oin Feb 28th when I see the heptologist next. I have more blood work next week.

Good luck.
Marg

Hi,
I've been out of town for several days this week so haven't had a chance to respond. It's good to hear from all of you. Good luck Marg, going further down on the p. I had a great visit with the hep doctor. I posted it in another post on here. I'll find it and copy and paste it. I felt so good after I left his office and have felt better mentally all week long.
Trish, good luck with school. I went back in my 40's. It was fun, but I wasn't sick then. I hope you will enjoy it. I only went part time. Sorry about the personal problems. I hope things get easier. I do understand all about them, been there and done that too many times.

Thanks Pink Grandma for the welcome. I think I wrote you on anohter post.
I am glad to be back. don't know how much I'll get on here, but will do my best.

Hugs,

Judy
