Hi everyone. I was recently diagnosed with mild ulcerative colitis and having had a bad reaction to two types of tablets I've been prescribed the steroid Predsol, in enema form. I'm wondering about the possible stort / long-term effects of it.

I'm sorry...can you clarify your question? You want the side effects of steroid enemas?

Apologies for the confusion. Yes, I'm wondering about any possible side effects of steroid enemas. I heard about weight gain, etc and am worried about long term use.
