I just took my fourth dose of 20 mg of prednisone. Since starting on Saturday, my cramps have gotten better. Slight cramping for a few seconds that quickly passes--no need to take anti-spasmodic. Still having very soft to D bms several times a day.
This morning I didn't have to get out of the bed and head to the bathroom. I didn't have a bm until I had been up for two hours. Weight has been stable for two days.
Does this sound like the prednisone is doing what it should. I have never taken it before so don't know what to expect. Will I continue to improve? GI wants me to taper by 5mg every two weeks. Do you think that is too fast. Has anyone tapered by 2.5 mg every week or every two weeks.
Sorry to have so many questions.
I am continuing to take 4 apriso and LDN cream 4.5mg each day.
