I'm doing them for the first time and I'm on week #3. I'm not always religious with doing them since it's such a pain. I usually skip them on the weekends but do them Mon-Thurs.
Anyway, my doctor prescribed them for a month without any tapering...is that normal? I know it doesn't get into my system the same way prednisone does but I know some of it's getting in there because I'm having a few side effects. Do you taper or stop cold turkey?
How long do you stay on them. I'd like to do them longer than a month.
Do you get moonface from them? I get horrible moonface with prednisone and I'm so paranoid about getting it with the enemas. I already feel like it's starting but it could be my imagination..lol.
Any other info you want to share...
