Random question here....Is it ok to take vicodin along with Prednisone? I talked to the doctor at the ER and he said it wouldn't be a problem to take with Pred and UC patients.

I've taken it for quite a while (unfortunately the Drs aren't sure what's wrong with my lower back) and have never been told there is a problem, nor have I experienced any problems combing these two drugs. My GI Dr has prescribed both at the same time.
I hope you are feeling better soon.

UC since age 22, now 27.  Several huge flares since then.  3/4 colon diseased. 
 
Currently tapering prednisone(10 mg from 80 mg).  Also just starting 6mp again(75 mg) and lialda.   I definately am not liking these drugs.  Maybe surgery one day?

Won my first professional MMA fight, took a body kick in the 1st round that did it in. I heard the pop, just gutted it out through the rest of the fight.

Yes. I was flared up on a prednisone taper, got down to 10mg and then had to go back up to 40 a week before my fight. It all worked out though.
