Hello all, just had a quick question about
prednisone. I've been on various doses off and on for the past 2 years (steroid-dependant). Even at 60mg/day, I would never consider myself "normal" in regards to my colitis, but it made it bearable.
My current stint started in Dec 2009 at 60mg. After about 5 months, I was able to taper down to 15mg. symptoms worsened, and now im back up to 40mg. 20mg seems to be the sweet-spot where the UC symptoms arent completely gone, but I can live with them and the Prednisone side-effects arent too over-bearing (no sleep, roid-rage, always hot, swollen face, weight gain, etc...).
i want to taper down again, because the pred side-effects are very noticable. my real question is: is it bad to keep going up and down in dosage? I know Im not supposed to be on it for extended periods of time.
thanks in advance for any comments!
