So I have been takning Prednisone for nearly a year - have tried to get off several times but had to go back to square one when I got down to about
5 mg/day. Now I am on Remicade and have the Pred down to 5 mg every other day. Feeling pretty good, this Remicade is the answer.
Now my question is: When should I expect to see this pregnant belly start to diminish? If ever. I can't believe how huge I am.
