Hi I've just been diagnosed with Chrons Disease in May. I Currently take 40mg of Prednisone, Asacol (6 pills twice a day) 6-MP 100mg and I just had my 3rd remicade treatment last week. I haven't had any problems with anything since I started my meds on May 30th. My GI doc said that he wants to start weaning me off of the prednisone next week, somewhere around 5mg every two weeks. What can I expect? I've put on about
10lbs since I started them, how fast will the weight come back off , moon pie face go away ect. Hopefully I can be weaned off completely, what is the lowest dose that doesnt make u have the weight gain, moon pie face?
