Brian...sounds like a good plan. You should, however, continue the decrease/taper to 3 days, 4 days..etc. and stay on the foam once a week at least.
You should also stay on the Asacol....6 a day is maintenance...forever. Really.
Again, your goal should NOT be to use pred. I personally think it sets up a person to hurry a flare treatment and neglect the importance of maintenance and early treatment with rectal meds.
Tell me why again you aren't using the 5ASA rectal meds and what happened when you were on them? Were you tapering to maintenance..etc?
*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... tapered to every 4th night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol (6 daily) + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 3(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed ....zymactive 3 - 5x daily
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg; Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
