It's weird 'cause I've never refused to take any meds and although I hated prednisone, I always wanted to take it just to get back to normal.
But, this time, I don't want to. I dropped all the pounds I gained (because of the flare, yes, but still...) and I don't want to gain it back again. Besides, I think I have pred to thank for the fact that my joints hurt like an old woman's with arthritis. Pred is the pretty poison...
As far as I can tell, I'm doing fine without it. Doing all my meds except for humira and the nausea medication...eating carefully...still have diarrhea, but I only go about once a day...I think this is about the best I can hope for...
I'm wondering: has anyone gotten out of a flare just on their own? Without prednisone?
Currently on: alternating doses of 6mp, 8 Asacol, weekly Humira, & 1000mg Canasa nightly
Also: generic Immodium and Levbid
Refusing to take pred and humira...(doing a diet/food diary change)
