Re: Crohn's and Prednisone
I know no one has responded, but for anyone reading this post that might be interested here is an update....
I am down to 5 mg prednisone and doing VERY well. I have been coming down .5 mg every four days. Perhaps the Remicade is starting to work??? it's been 2 week since my fourth infusion. Also spoke with my doc about my concerns with the ibuprofen and he agreed. I am back on Norco fo A.S. pain but this time he is only giving me a weeks worth at a time to help avoid the temtation to abuse the narcotics. This seems to be a good plan as I am now using about half of what i was before he cut me off. At first I was upset with my doc for taking away my pain relief, but now i realize how fortunate i am to have a doctor who is actually concerned about my long term well being.
