I started on prednisone on Sunday at 60 mg. My doctor likes to start big to kick it "in the butt" and I called him desperate as I snowballed really quickly. It helped right away to lower the urgency during the day. However, I still am waking up at 4:30 (hour and a half early) to go and then get better after I take the prednisone and then get worse again after work and really bad in teh evening? Supposotories and enemas have never worked for me in the past? I saw someone say ice works well but I HATE COLD! The heating pad has been a life saver and I look forward to getting off work and laying on my couch with my heating pad. Does anyone else have any other ideas for evening time? I saw a few earlier posts about tea and I'll try that also...
Diagnosed when 13 and am now 25. Currently taking 100mg of 6mp, 60 mg of prednisone and 12 pills of asacol a day

Hey, i had a similar problem, but i split my dose of pred and took half in the morning and half in the evening. If you do do this, dont take it too late cause it can keep you from falling a sleep. It worked much better for me. Hope this helps. Good luck!
