Okay I called into my GI doc for his weekly report. Told him things had been great since my diet changes and last week he switched me to lialda. Things have been great since then. We are working on tapering off the Pred. Started at 40mg and he has been decreasing by 5 mg. Now after I finally give him a "great" report, Now he only wants me to taper by 2.5? Not sure why? His med tech just left me this message. Couldn't really ask.
Now this means my 10 mg prescription has to be changed to 2.5mg prescription. and I have like TONS of 10mg pills. But this is a small bother, my insurance does cover this so I get my scripts for 15 dollars. New script is just an annoyance.
My question is do any of you have any idea why after decreasin by 5 with bad reports, he finally gets a good report and now decides to only dcrease by 2.5? Am not wanting to have a relapse but am anxious to get off this stuff. any ideas?
