"I realize that you know that you can't be on prednisone forever. I was referring to the fact that you mentioned that on the website that it says you only do Canasa for 3-6 weeks, which means that you have not only stopped the Lialda (maybe for good reason) as a maintenance med, but in 3-6 weeks you will also have stopped the Canasa as a maintenance med, and don't even know what the game plan will be after that and at that time you won't be on the prednisone anymore and you also won't be on any regular maintenance med, or a changed maintenance med, or maybe no maintenance med, or put back on Lialda, knowing that the first time around it was bad news. This is a recipe for another flare, after which your doctor will probably put you back on prednisone all over again and mix in Imuran, meaning you will be on prednisone for a few months until the Imuran kicks in. This is the most likely scenario. To me that is not a good game plan"
