Taking 6mp during a pregnancy is pretty much just not an option for me, same with any other of those types of drugs. Truthfully the whole suggestion made me call my doctor into question and makes me want to find a doctor that has more experience with pregnant patients.
I have been feeling well off of 6mp so far, I am in a little flare right now, but that is my own fault for working too much during busy season at my job. I know getting worn out is the worst thing for me to do and I let it happen. This is the first time I've been on prednisone in 7 years and I'm luckily responding very well so far - so I'm hoping for a short cycle on it.
It's very good to know that the Entocort is there as a safe back up plan in case I would start to flare during a pregnancy.
