Last time I saw my GI doc he advised me to taper off prednisone, i'm at 10mg now, on Friday 7.5mg and every Friday go down 2.5mg till i'm off it which is first week in Jan 2008. My symptoms are still the same since he last told me to taper off it and now he's saying stay on when I get to 5mg of pred. He increased my Imuran to 150mg from 75mg as he told me that will happen in about
a month or so from starting. Also blood work every 2 weeks now, soon to be once a month ;)
My family doc sees i'm not well on pred, i've been having sleepin issues, headaches, pain in my bones, and I really want off it.
Should I follow my old plan and come off it, and if the D comes back go back on pred? Or...?
These side effects happened before I went on Imuran and was only on pred at the time when they began btw.
