Ive had a few month flare going on here -it is relentless this time. My doc started me on 40mg pred and bumped asacol to 12 a day. At first the high dose of pred made me feel great - cant believe I just said that about
pred - but I felt great and had solid stool within days. Now I have tapered to 10mg - and I am bleeding, running to the bathroom, fearing crapping myself, and having lots of the typical UC symptoms.
I actually want to be on more dose of pred - for a longer time - cant believe I just said that again - but I think my doc prematurely tapered me off... He is talking about
Imuran or Remicade - but I am somewhat afraid of those - Id rather be on pred....
