today I had an appointment. My doc was encouraged with my current conditions. I'm currently tapering off Prednisone (currently on 5mg) and he wants me to go down to 2.5mg for one week after I'm done with the 5mg.
After that he is wanting to INCREASE my Asacol from (6) 400mg pills daily to (8) daily. Does this make sense? It seems to me that I would be fine staying at (6) but I'm not a doctor. I just don't understand what he's trying to do here.
I'm also concerned with this because my hair has been falling out worse it seems since I've been on these medications.
Opinions would be appreciated.
