I’ve been in a flare since April this year. Finally after being placed on prednisone 20mg tablets for the past 3 weeks and now starting to taper by 5mg every 2 weeks, I’m getting some relief..I’m also taking Balsalazide 3 capsules 3X daily, Canada suppository at night, probiotics 2x daily..bms are no longer bloody and the rectal pain is almost gone. Frequency has also improved.
