I am intolorent to mesalyzine so my doctor has prescribed me prednisolone 40mg then tapering 5mg down every week.
It put me on 1 BM a day after day 3! and im fine - Pity its not a drug i can use forever :(
I'm now on week 4, 25 mg a day and still fine.
I've searched the forum but couldnt see anyone that got remission from prednisolone tablets?? (except myself) - anyone?
Wanted to know if symptons generally comeback when medication stops??
