What does your doctor say? For me, I was immediately able to taper of the pred within days of starting the remicade, but I had a particularly good response to remi and I hated being on the pred, so it was like I had an incentive
I also replaced my pred with entocort a few years ago and have found the side effects to be fewer and further between.
