Remi worked for us, but not fully till the 5th treatment, and even then we had to adjust the dose upward. No other side affects to speak of. Easy compared to the other stuff we've been through. Weight was stable. Probably the Pred taper or just an appetite thing. Mention it to your doc. i hope it works forever--she is eating everything, only 1-2 well formed stools per day, and for now, living life.
