Can you call your doctor for advice to avoid a doctors visit and a charge? It really depends on how you respond to prednisone as to how much you need for a quick taper. I have been at this for almost 22 years and for me I need about 30mg for 4 days and then go from there, but I've discussed this with my doctor many times and I know how I react to prednisone from many years of tapers and flares.

Managing with strict low residue diet, keeping symptoms to a minimum. All test show small amount of ulceration, still have occasional blockages. But still have a great time with my 2 daughters and husband!
