I think I am treating my current flare successfully without prednisolone ( I am always scared to say that in case I wake up tomorrow and it's all gone bad again). I have never been able to do this before but I have never experienced a flare whilst taking Azathioprine. I have all they symptoms of a flare but I would say they are not as major as I have experienced before. I have been using prednisolone enemas morning and night and I am getting relief (I have never been able to do this before either). I had an appt at my doctors yesterday and they didn't want me to start using steroids (and neither did I) so I am going to continue with rectal meds and they prescribed me Amnitriptyline which I think is more used for IBS but what the hell I'll give it a try.
I also take probiotics, fish oils and L-Glutamin.
