Hi Brt... I was just wondering this myself, haha. I looked back at my original thread here just now www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=38&m=2675323
Looks like I'm only at the 10 week mark. So say 2 months + a little. I was told it can take 3-6 months to fully balance (who knows if this is true or not?? haha). Some respond fast and soon and others take more time I was told. In any case it's for sure not the easiest thing to tolerate as you can see by the others going through it.
There seems to be the crazy swings. More bad than good perhaps at first. Time will tell though. This curent dose has been very, very difficult. More mentally than anything. Like a blah... depressed feeling that lifts in the late afternoon and evening after my 4pm dose. It's weird.
I'd like to see this through till either I click.. or I don't. I'm running a little low on patience right now, but that's only because (as we all are) desperate for something to finally work that doesn't have all the crazy side effects of meds. As you can see by the link I was on Pred and Imuran when I started this.
What dose of Pred are you on now? And I've had 5 urine tests to date, but one was a double test on the same dose, which was my fault so really I should be at four right now.
