I suggest you follow your doctor's advice. The times I resisted higher doses and tried to get by with a lower dose it just prolonged things. The kick start of a week @ 50 mg will hopefully be what you need to get headed in the right direction.
Osteoporosis is worriesome, but I don't see any alternatives at this point. Do you?
What maintenance meds are you on? I suspect you need to make an appointment with a GI sooner rather than later to discuss biologics. You have been trying to get this under control for a long time with no success. Time for a new approach
Hope the pred kicks in soon!
