confused  Hi All,
Today I am in so much pain.  I am taking the day off from work to nurture myself. I started on Imuran on June 1, 2007.  I started to taper off the pred. and had so much pain. My dr. said to go up to 30 mg of pred. and then I developed an infection on my tongue. Then he said to go down to 10 mg of pred which I did 2 weeks ago and today I am nauseaus, have pain, am exhaused.  What should I do go back up to 30 mg of pred?

When will this imuran start to work. Its been 13 weeks since  started????????????????????
Porclein (Imuran 200 mg per day.  Pred.  10 mg, vsl- 3, fish oil, tumeric)

Sorry to hear you're in pain. You've done the right thing to take the day off and take it easy. Your doctor will have to make the call on the prednisone. I understand it can take three months or more for immunosuppresants to kick in. I'd put a call in to your doc and let him know about your pain and nausea.
