I have mild crohns and am just starting 5 weeks of prednisone 40mg a day to start, reduced by 10mg each week along with Asacol 400mg x 3 for an undetermined amount of time. This is the first time I have had to take any kind of meds. Here are my questions
Is 5 weeks the usual amount of time to be on prednisone the first time?
Will being on Prednisone this length of time cause the puffy face?
Why does prednisone make some people tired and others wired?
Do any of you who have started both of these meds at the same time, had alot of side affects and how does one know which med would be causing the side effects if you are on them at the same time?
And finally, I feel so blessed to know there is a place I can come to where there are people who are willing to give advice, encourage me and help me thru my journey.
