Hi....you can mark the proposed schedule in a lower corner of a calendar..in pencil or have white-out. I plan all my tapers that way...written because I don't remember. It also serves as a reference in the future if you have to look back. The schedule can always change based on symptoms and if I evaluate a faster taper..etc.
So, it would basically be an enema every third night. The night you do it....count the next day as one, the day after as two, the next day third and enema night.
So, two nights in between with no meds....and that's all because of your limited supply making a suggestion to stretch it out.
Every second night would work as well but for not as long...enema (5ASA), skip, enema (steroid), skip..etc..
I would be remiss to not suggest a proper treatment to do the enemas every night, one night 5ASA, the next steroid.

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
