Help Me Get off Prednisone, I am having a hard time getting of this colitis medication.
Im a 32 year old male and I can’t seem to get off prednisone steroids. I’ve had Ulcerative Colitis for about 13 years and I’ve been on just about every medication there is. I don’t think i have ever been in remission. I’m in constant pain everyday of my life …my back my joints basically my everything hurts.
Is there anyone else having trouble getting off prednisone?

There are many different stories listed as you can imagine since so many people with ulcerative colitis are being prescribed steroids and specifically prednisone / prednisolone at some point or multiple points throughout life with colitis. It is one of those very tricky medications that often helps treat the symptoms, but also it can often have some nasty side effects as we learned with the results of the Prednisone/Prednisolone Survey. One thing that we should all agree on is, make sure to consult with your physician or medical doctor before you start taking this drug. Although the little white prednisone pills might look innocent, they can pack a mean punch and are not something to play around with.
