I think you should stay on the enemas....you should still be on them nightly once you're off the pred. It should help any slight relapse.
I don't think you need the Canasa...save it for when you do or when you're tapering the enemas...later.
If you stay at 12 Asacol, again until after the pred, you can eventually....and please, please, please taper by only one pill a week....to maybe 8....and if you do well on that for a month or so, taper to 6....
You have a ways to go, again from my perspective, but if you take the time and aren't in an hurry to be where you expect to be, then if you need to, you can increase when you need. That might only have to be to 10 or eventually to 12, but you'll have more than wiggle room.
Just hang tough.
You didn't have a run-away train....yours was just building up speed. Your perspective of a bad flare and mine are probably different. You're just creating your regimen, and that takes experience. You also have lots of other stuff to deal with too.
