Sounds like you found a keeper there. And yes sometimes Pred is needed to give the Crohns what it needs to quickly quiet the inflammation down. As Grandpato2 said some people get lots of energy, and sometimes a little more fatigue. I have experienced the same as both of the above and taken Pred many many times in my many years with this dd. Oh by the way, my family doc is an internist and then I have a GI for the rest. The two work together to keep me healthier. Hugs!
