I started on the 6MP about two weeks ago and I seem to be having great success with it. Dr. mentioned that it could take up to two months but it seemed to work in a couple of days. Maybe just coincidence. I also started the tapering on the 5mg Prednisone to every other day, today being my last dose.
The problem that I am having is that I feel nauseous and tired at different times throughout the day. My Dr. says there isn't much we can do except switch meds. Also I haven't gotten back the results of the bloodwork yet. I would hate to switch if it seems to be working and I assume the tapering also has some side effects. Has anyone else had to deal with this?
