Unfortunately he wanted to give me a week of prednisone and said he hoped after that I could “ideally control it with Lialda alone.”
One week of prednisone...? That wouldn't do anything. A normal course is at least 4-6 weeks with a taper. Really odd any GI would recommend that.
I've never used the foam enemas. I asked my GI about
adding those in one time but he said the data doesn't show that to be any more effective than mesalamine enemas so I never tried both.
