prednisone and entocort together?

If entocort 9mg isn't enough?

I took prednisone (10 to 5 mg) for 6 months with Entocort. Finally I am just on Entocort. I tried to wean off but I started having a lot of inflammation again. So now on 9 mg Encocort along with Imuran and Asacol. Hopefully this will work.

I was on 9 mg Entocort a day and then developed a bad flare. I was put on 40 mg of prednisone a day. The taper was to reduce by 5 mg per week.
