I started on 40mgs when I was diagnosed a couple months ago.... holy hell did it do a number on me... added with all the antibiotics I was on. I went to the ER more than once freaking out because the side effects we're getting to me. Eventually I decided to split the dose, 20 in the morning and 20 midday. As I weaned down I think I finally took it all at once around 20.
Now due to a posssible flare, infection, and my inability to tolerate Imuran I'm back at 30... and taking the full does right after breakfast. I notice it a lot for most of the day. But not as bad as before. I know how it affects me this time so when I feel it coming I go ok Pred lets have fun today!
