I have been tapering my prednisone for about a month and a half now... I'm currently on 20mg every morning. I take two lialda with that every morning as well with food.
I've been taking these usually at about 6:15 every morning and on weekends no later than 9 because I like to sleep in. But today I woke up really late.. like 10:00 and my stomach was seriously pissed at me haha. I had 4 bowelmovements and tons of gas and stomach cramping.
Did I mess up my stomach by going off my schedule by that much. I know that people on here have said to try to take it before 9 because that's a body's normal schedule.
I'm just hopin I didn't screw up the healing process.
