I started taking 60mg of prednisone a day since 9/7 and stopped taking my lialda on 9/6. I have been having more blood in my stools, but I go less times per day (mostly in the am a few times before I leave the house) and don't know how long it generally takes to see improvement.
I know I am probably being impatient but............
