My questions are these:
1) for those of you on imuran, how long did it take to kick in?
2). Would you go up to 30mg or stay at 20mg?
3). Anyone have the joint pain? I don't know of it is from the prednisone or from imuran.
4). Would you switch to remicade at this point, or would you give the imuran more time to kick in? I know they say it can take up to 6 months, but I can't imagine being on pred. That much longer!
the ones i can answer is 3) YES - i get terrible joint pain from steriods , oddly , i am not diabetic and my sugars dont go over 250 but when the creep up the joint pain got way worse?! whats worked for me is metaphormin insulin 250 mg a day , i dont know why but since i started it the pain is way less...
personally i would stay as low on steriods as possible or you just end up on it for longer and longer ! and i'd probally try giving imuran a bit more time just cause ( although i dont know becasue i have not takin remi or imuran)
wishin you luck!
