Thanks for the info, everyone. Come to think of it, the whole sensitive teeth thing came on while I was in a CD flair, so I was taking 40 mg of pred for two weeks, then 30 for two weeks, and now I've been on 20 for two weeks, and the sensitive teeth thing has gotten better over the last couple days. Don't know if it's from the lower pred dose, or if the Sensodyne is finally working.
I'm soooo happy to have that flair under control. Not only under control, but full remission now. I think that the Humira and Azasan have had enough time to finally make a difference. My current cocktail of 20 mg pred, 100 mg Azasan, bi-weekly Humira, 9 mg Entocort, and 4 gm of pentasa really seems to have knocked my CD to the mat. My wife still thinks it's weird to hear a "woo hoo!!" coming from the bathroom. ;)
I'm now getting as good of relief from 20 mg of pred as I was at 40 mg of pred. I really think the difference is the Azasan starting to kick in. Once I hit the four month point on Azasan, I'm going to taper all the way off the pred and see if the Azasan, Humira and Pentasa are enough to stay in remission. This is my Doc's suggestion, btw, as he doesn't like to keep people on pred if there are other viable alternatives that are as effective.
