prednisone NOt working
So I started on 20mg of pred 3 weeks ago. Not change other than insomnia and more cramping than normal. 2 weeks in my GI says go to 30mg of pred. I have been doing that for a week now and still no change. Is it possible that this just won't work for me? I though prednisone was the miracle cure to get me out of this flare :( It's been 14 months and counting. Next on the list is Azathioprine. Can anyone tell me about that?
