safest immunosuppressive drug

This is for those specially who are dependent on steroid prednisolone. I have been on prednisolone for two years until recently when I was changed to the steroid Budesonide. My health has transformed greatly. My blood pressure and blood sugar normalised. My weight has started going down as well. My appetite has lowered also. I am taking Budesonide 9 mg and this drug has a very high safety profile and low side effects. This drug is safer than cellcept and also tacrolimus. Budesonide has been used in liver transplant and also autoimmune hepatitis. So those who are fed up with prednisolone and other immunosuppresants ask your doctor about Budesonide. Now I am only only Budesonide and Imuran. I have stopped prednisolone, cellcept and tacrolimus for some time now.

Hope this helps!

  •  I am glad you found the combination that works for you. There are some that would not benefit from this medication change. Both Prednisolone and Budesonide curtail the allergic reaction to " invaders and allergens." Please read about this med and its effects.
