It used to make me feel pretty much completely back to normal within just a few days. The last two times I had to go up to 50 mg because 40 mg wasn't helping (maybe I wasn't patient enough, I don't know), and it took a week or two to work. When it works though, you will typically feel completely normal. No UC symptoms. It's extremely fast-acting compared to any other UC meds. I kind of loved prednisone. I can't take it anymore though since it gave me osteoporosis. Lol. I recommend taking a calcium and Vit. D supplement while on it or eat enough in your diet.
Ya im about
to throw in the towel and start pred. been flaring for 6 months, on a roller coaster thinking im headed to remission then back down the drain...Funny thing is it sucks but i kinda like it too..lol. i don't really have to many side effects. one thing is im a musician and it makes me practice all day..so that's the positive thing hahah.
thing is i cant take any calcium, i get kidney stones as well.
