Hey guys. Currently trying to combat a stubborn flare at the moment. Been active for about
3 weeks now after a 8 month remission period. Tried the usual enemas and upping my mesalazine to combat it, but just wouldn’t go away so my IBD nurse has prescribed me with 40MG pred course which I started a few days ago. Pred pretty much gets me in remission every single time, but just a little concerned as my symptoms have got worse in the few days I started taking it. More blood and more toilet trips than before the pred. I guess my question is, does Pred work like that sometimes ? Where you’re symptoms can get worse when you initially take it, but gradually get better once the colon starts to heal ? I usually take 2 weeks before I see big improvements on Pred, so I’m not overly worried. Just a little concerned my symptoms have got worse, so a bit of reassurance would be great.
