I've been Pred loads of times.The side effects are nasty but the benefits massive.Are you taking any rectal 5-ASA MEDS. These enemas can really help with the healing process.I was on 60mgs of Pred so many times.It is not a nice place to be,mood swings,insomnia, hyperactive and dizzy:)
Youi are not alone, most of us have been there.Welcome to HW
