I don't think a taper is necessary with only a week of the cortenemas. I didn't taper unless I'd been on them for months. You could call your pharmacist if you don't want to call your doc.
They are very expensive! What a way to spend your money, huh? I would cringe everytime I'd fork out that kind of $$ for enemas! ;-)
Have you tried the ASA enemas? I can't use those, but I believe they help others.
