I keep reading about
people that have been on prednisone for more than a year, or even for a couple of years. is that without a break or just continuous??? It sounds like such a lot! I thought you'd become resistant after a while..?
My doctor wouldn't let me take it when I'd been on it for a couple of months because she said I'd become resistant and it wouldn't have any effect on me long term anyway..?
Now I'm on it again after a two month's break from it. I was doing well during that break on a high dose of Asacol+Asacol enemas, but then I got worse again for some stupid reason..
Now the prednisone seems to be working fine again (allthough I HATE the side effects like moon face and all that!) don't know how long I'll be on it for this time.
I think the next step would be 6mp or something if the asacol doesn't keep me in remission once i've come off the pred..
Also, I thought Lialda, Asacol, colasal were all 5ASAs=pretty much the same thing..? what are the differences? just curious to know..
And could 5ASAs be adictive like prednisone? like you'd become resistant and they'd stop working..??
