OK, so now I am on Cortenema. Does anyone know if this stuff is straightforward cortisone, or is it the entocort/budenoside topical stuff? The former is more likely to cause "roid rage", I think, especially since I have a full month of daily use and then two months of tapering.

After 5 days, no real side effects except a bit of stomach ache, which may not be linked to the cortisone, but to Mcdonals lunch today. The cortenemas seem to have worked in this short time. After ages of endless D, I started to bleed and produce mucous etc., and this seems to help all of that. We'll see, I have been the king of false cures over the past 2 1/2 years, things help for a while and then back down the hole I go.
