It's possible. Be sure to tell the GI about it tomorrow; if your daughter won't taper with the rectal drugs she may need to start a very low oral dose and taper it. I can understand her frustration, though.

It's not necessarily from that, I've quit cortifoam cold turkey plenty of times with no reprocushions at all.

Maybe not, but she's been on proctofoam, cort suppositories and hydrocortisone enemas all at the same time, so it's possible. That's quite a bit of rectal steroid.

PLEASE, PLease take her to the dcotor, as she could have menengial irritation from something else even. Eye pain and stiff neck are not normal. College age kids often get menningitis. Take her in to the ER if she has even a hint of a fever with these symptoms.
