Hi All,
 
I have been tapering down weekly.  I am on 10 now and will go down to 5 next Thursday.
 
I really thought when I started tapering down that the side effects would start lessening, but I think the opposite has happened.  I have been getting CRAZY hot flashes, increased hair growth, darkened facial hair, moon face, depressed, and moody. These are things I didn't have even when I was on 40 mgs.
 
So, how long were you on Pred, and how long did it take for things to subside after you quit/tapered down?
 
Thanks so much!


40 mgs of Pred
50 mgs of Imuran
3 Lialda
1 Canasa at night

Mine side effects are worse under 25 mg - I feel great at 40 and nothing bothers me. But once I start going down I have trouble concentrating and get not so nice to my husband and gain weight.
Jessica 27/F 20mg pred
dicyclomine 10Mg as needed
Citalopram 20 MG
omeprazole(for acid reflex)
Tried (Entorcort EC 9ml/day and Prednisone, Asacol ,colazal, Culturelle)
