I think I am steriod resistant or close to it. I was put on pred 60mg a day the same day I went cold turkey off asacol and three weeks later I went into a huge flare. I think only the cipro and hydrocortisone e's helped me (though the e's had steriods, so I don't really know).
However, I was/am not resistant to all the horrible pred side effects. I started getting the hot flashes pretty quickly and in month two began to get everything else.
