I am currently at 2.5mg per day and tomorrow will be my last day. I had been on 20mg for over a year and SCD finally stopped the bleeding. I didn't bleed for about
3 or four months so my Dr and I decided to start tapering. I have very minor bleeding now, but I am almost off so I am happy about
that. Along with the bleeding i have a little mucus mostly in the mornings. Hopefully my body just needs to adjust to being off prednison.
Severe Colitis (pancolitis) since January 9, 2005
currently: I must say Under Control
RX/day: 5mg prednisone; 2400mg Asacol; 150 Azathioprine
OTC: Probioplus DDS; seldom use vitamins & other natural treatments
FYI: 3 weeks of SCD diet and caprylic acid put and end to my 3rd and worst flare ever. (But i'm not in SCD anymore)
