Hello all --
As of now, I am starting the tapering process -- yay! I'm currently on 40 mg, and will start to taper 5 mg/week starting this Saturday. I have began a low sodium, low carb, low fat, low sugar diet and saw a loss of 1.2 lbs in a day after incorporating a mile of brisk walking into my day! Today, I biked 1.38 miles and I'm already starting to see and feel the difference.
My question is: When do most people begin to see diminished symptoms (Moon face, weight, acne)?
I know medicine works differently per person, but I'm just curious as to when people began to really see this hell of a drug wear off!
EDIT: The Prednisone was prescribed to me as a result of a UC flare up. Began on April 10th - 60 mg, May 2nd - 40mg.
Currently on sulfasalazine to maintain my remission.
Diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis on April 10th, 2014.
4 pills of 500mg Sulfasalazine, 2 times a day.
