I am down to 5mgs of prednisone and about to drop to 2.5 on Friday. I am wondering as far as maintenance meds....what works better canasa or rowasa? Currently I am doing canasa in the AM and switching between rowasa and cort enema at night. I really only do the cort enema 2x a week and do the rowasa the rest.
My flare started back in June. My BM's are down to 2 a day. I did see a speck of blood this morning...but missed my enema last night (is that why???). I am going to my GI on Friday and I know she is going to ask me what I WANT TO DO. I dont know. ....
