Hi..it's possible and has probably happened to many of us.
How long were you on the 6 daily? I think you should have stayed on them...or just added one pill per day to get up to the 6 daily (3000mg)
I would suggest you stay at the pred level now, don't up it and discuss the rectal meds..have we not suggested it to you? They're available in the philippines, right? If so, your doc should have suggested them to you.
You could ask him about Salofalk retention enemas (since I see you used the pills in the past).
*Heather*Status:mini flare June 23* 6asacol daily+ Salofalk (tapered every 3rd night)
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 2 (Natural Factors Protec) + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) at bedtime
~Natural Factors Multi Digestive Enzymes with supper
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg; Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
