My first flare and c-diff, was about 4 months because it was helped with prednisone.
Second flare was about 6 months, again with prednisone but with flagyl.
At the present moment, I am just on asacol and trying real hard to not go on prednisone. The last time I had prednisone, I thought my heart was not going to stop beating so fast and hard, the insomnia was terrible and the mood swings too. Wow, that was really scary for me.
I wish there were a natural cortisone supplement to take other than the pred.
