I got given prednisolone 40mg for one week, then tapering by 5mg every week, so an eight week course. And Pentasa tablets, 2g a day I believe, or maybe it was 4g before being cut down to a 2g maintenance dose later. If you've got severe inflammation I'm not sure just 5-ASAs would be prescribed but I did get that course to treat my first flare up. It worked bloody well, but a doctor prescribed it for my situation, so I don't know if it'd fit yours now.
