Judilyn, I read that AMK is taking 40 mg pred for 10 days then 20 mg for 5 days. Is that right AMK?
If so you might want to run this by your GI doc. I don't have that much experience with pred, but from what I've read people taking here, it seems like a pretty fast taper, and I have no idea how that would effect your UC.
I second the congrats!
