Okay, still haven't heard back from my GI. But, I am calling again as soon as I get off of here.
I've got a dumb question about pred and tapering. My GI started me on 40 mgs for two weeks. In the two weeks I saw some improvement, but still daily symptoms. In theory, are you supposed to stay on the initial dose of Pred until you are in remission and then start tapering down? Not that this really matters for me and my situation, I was just curious and confused about it after reading some other posts.
I can tell a difference, lessening, in my "weird" feelings since tapering down just 10 mgs, though. I didn't start my increased dosage of seizure meds until last night. So, they can tell me the steroids didn't have anything to do with until they are blue in the face; however, I have my own opinion on that.
BTW - things are already heading south again in the colon department for me. This after just tapering off 10 mgs!!!! So, I am really getting anxious about starting the enemas. I am leaving on vacation in two weeks and would really like to have a good handle on things before I go.
Of course, I don't think the stress of the seizure and then having to deal with my doctors has helped the situation any.
40 mgs of Pred
50 mgs of Imuran
