I got the go ahead from my doctor to start my pred taper today. I am both excited and nervous, but fingers crossed. I drop by 5 mg for a week, then hold for 10 ten days, then 5 more, hold, etc. This seems a bit different than what I have seen others post about, has anyone else tapered this way? I have been on 30 mg a day for 3 weeks and am back down to 1-3 bm's a day from as many as 8-10. I still see the occasional spot of blood, but not much and otherwise my stool looks pretty normal. I am still on nightly enemas and 4 lialda to keep the healing going in the right direction.
