Yes, I agree. If you seem to be responding well, then it should be fine once you are off the prednisone. With my initial diagnosis, I wasn't even put on oral prednisone, just occasional steroid enemas and sulfasalazine (asacol - mesalamine wasn't around then). I had very good maintenance with just those drugs and ultimately a 15 year remission with no meds.
