Thank you Tara - truly looking for a suppository suggestion since I have a problem "applying" the enemas - not keeping them in but getting them in there. Anyway, you can take mesalamines too which helps you I know. I am only on prednisone because of all the side effects of ALL the others. I am thinking maybe suppository stronger than Canasa - more small amount of steroid maybe - just to sooth the rectal area. I am still having some discomfort and mucous - small amount! Maybe those used for hemmroids?
