I have UP. I was in a mild flare (up to 12 bms per day) for about six months while taking Canasa. When my flare became very severe (awful pain, couldn't eat), I finally saw my gastro who put on on 40mg of prednisone and Apriso. The prednisone worked like magic. My bms went down to 1-2 per day and I felt AMAZING. Prednisone for me was like being on cocaine and I had no negative side effects.
I tapered the prednisone for 6 weeks while taking the Apriso, which kicked me out of the flare.
