Perhaps you are tapering off the pred too soon. I was on pred a very long time about
2 months which got me down to 4 poops a day, then I started the taper. When this flare began I was at 15-20 poops a day so I've come a long ways. I started both pred and 6mp (very similar to your Azathioprine) to combat this flare. And the addition of the 6mp helps explain the long duration of the pred, I had to wait for the 6mp to work its magic and it takes quite a while to build up in your or my system. I am also at a daily 5 grams of oral Meslamine (Lialda), and 4 grams of Meslamine through an enema (Rowasa). So seems your meslamine dosage could be much higher as well.

Rx: Daily 50mg 6MP, Lialda, Rowasa, tapering Prednisone now @ 25mg
