Welcome to the forum but sorry to hear you suffer from awful bowel problems like we do.
Yes, it can take a month, multiple months or longer to achieve a remission. It sucks. Be patient.
Humira takes a miminimum of 4 to 6-weeks to start working, and longer to give a full remission. Azathioprine takes a minimum of 3-months to work. There's no easy-button, no instant-gratification, and absolutely no fast-pass to this. Rather, it takes time.
Pred should hold you over until those other meds work. Pred works lightening fast.
