Since my unfortunate experience with Asacol last Monday, I've been pretty sick. (The Asacol gave me a bloody D reaction). I started a short prednisone taper this morning - 1 week at 30mg, 1 week at 20mg, 1 week at 10mg.
I was starting to feel a little better yesterday, started eating again - but still having ab pains and got up to run to the toilet about 4 times last night. I'm curious to see if the pred will work for me this time. It has never worked in the past 4 times I've taken it, but I have since learned that I had a nasty c-diff infection at the time which went undetected. So, maybe it will have a chance this time.
So, how quickly does prednisone help you when you are sick? It's pretty fast right?

Following excellent Omega-3 diet as per James Scala's 'The New Eating Right for the Bad Gut' - got me out of a flare.
