Your GI is correct that about
1/3 of people become steroid dependent. Many people here started Remicade in order to get themselves off prednisone.
Short course defers between docs but mine has two favorite short courses for me. All the following are millegrams per day.
1) 40, 30, 20, 10 [4 days total]
2) 40, 40, 30, 30, 20, 20, 10, 10 [8 days]
Option #2 was to conteract issues I was having with my Remicade infusion. Option #2 has been prescribed to me numerous times for asthma flairs.
