Ugh....

Just when I tapered down to 5 Mg of prednisone, my gi doctor wants me to go back up to 40 mg. I've been on steroids since August! They're never gonna go away......

Have you tried any biologics or immunosuppressants? Pred is good short term but it's not a maintenance drug.

It sounds like they aren't working. Why aren't they trying something else?
