im curious to know... can prednisolone just all of a sudden stop working?
i've been on 50mg a day for 4 weeks exactly. i have 2 more to go at 50mg before i taper by 10mg per 5 days.
my bm's have become almost completely formed (which means it hurts like hell comin out)...
and no blood during these bm's
but the last few days, i have gone to the toilet more than my "getting better" once a day and there has been the tell-tale blood and bits. and uncomfortable cramping has come back.
is it just my colon getting rid of the lining and mucous that was "ripped" up from my earlier formed bm or is it my colitis coming back or getting worse?
the pred seemed to have been doing its job (with the side effects as well) and then this goes and happens...
can pred just stop working or am i being paranoid cuz im trying to get better faster than it takes to actually heal?
