After reading a few other posts this morning, I notice some said that if you are on low dose Pred, you may not get any side effects?
I understand that for some, a low dose may not be enough to help their flare, but was wondering.
Does the doctor start you off low, and of it doesn't work increase the does?
I am more afraid of the side effects of the Pred, than I am the UC.
It took me a long time to get myself at an acceptable weight for my cholestrol,and arthritis in my knees and if I started gaining again, it would not be a good thing.
What is the usual, dose of starting on Pred, or is every doctor different about that, depending on how bad your flare?
I don't want to think that going on vacations are no longer an option for us, but my last one to Vegas was horrible, in more my worry I would need a bathroom, than actually needing one. I don't want to put myself or my husband through that again.
Anyhow I would appreciate any help you can give on the Prednisone information.
