My GI doc put me on 30 mg of prednisone to help with a flare. She said she will start to taper me when I feel better. It has been two weeks since I have been on it. I feel better, no D, little stomach pain, but I am nausaus, tired but not as tired as I was and I am achy. Is that the flare or the prednisone? I want to start weening off, my doc said no more that 5 mg at a time, but I don't want to be sick again. If I taper do you think I will maintain with no flare with my pentasa? Let me know what you all think.
