Why does your DR only want you to use the suppositories every 3 days? This does not make sense. And I would suggest switching from suppositories to retention enemas, nightly. You can even do the enemas at night and the suppository during the day. This would be the quickest way off pred.
Pred is not your friend, as you well know. Your DR should know this, too, and the idea that s/he is restricting your use of mesalamine in favor of prednisone may mean that you need a new DR.
Is your OB on board with this treatment plan???
