No my doctor is great, he sees me every 3 months as well, i am just inbetween at the moment. He also has done a lot of preventative tests where i have been on the prednisone so long (bone scan, blood work every month for the imuran, cataract check every 6 months, etc). He had wanted me to wait until April to start my taper, but my mental status is pushing me to start now (extreme depression which is starting to get to my family) so i figured i may as well try again (i have my 1mg pills from before). the 6MP made me sick and was causing my liver to shut down but the Imuran seems to be doing well with my system and so far i have not had any side effects which is nice.
Mythmoon, Congrats on the last dose of pred!!! you must be so happy! I can't wait for that day to come! I am going to stick to the 9mg for another week and see how i do..i do feel a bit better today so we shall see!
Thank you so much for your advice!
