  • I have it and have had several cycles (relapses). I took Prednisone in 4-6 week cycles on a step down schedule every time I had a flare. I started feeling better about 2-3 weeks into the treatment. Over the years, adjusting to the disease, I've found that diet management is the best preventative and often use that now at the beginning to control a flare instead of medication. Msg me if you have more questions.

  • I have UC and I have taken prednisone for a month cycle and it did not work at all I bleed right through it. Everybodys body is different, watching what you eat helps alot, certain people cant eat certain things when they have colitis with me its sugar
