Your flare won't disappear after one suppository. It could be that the pred has just kicked in and the rectal inflammation is being helped by the canasa...
or am I misreading your posting that you're still on pred?
What dosage are you on at this time?
You're as well on the asacol, metronidazole, steroid enemas (twice daily) AND now started the Canasa?
I'm puzzled why you would think that it was just the Canasa?
Although...I'm a huge 5ASA "fan"....but I wouldn't give it that much credit.
Would you clarify what exactly you're on.
it's great you're feeling better, however...you haven't tapered pred yet.

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
