The Asacol is a good med for maintenance. Other, stronger ones help to get you off of the Pred., We have been off Pred. for 2 plus weeks, and I am sorry to say the acne is not a quick thing to recover. My daughter has been demonized by it, even with frequent Derm appts., that scrape and burn. It does get better, but you have to be patient. Your colon is more important that your acne...I know, I know,,, that is not a good answer. Good friends will see thru it. Cover it and beat it down.... but do not risk your colon for i t! The weight will come off easily, and the hair will recover too. Hang in there!
