I know depression and mood changes can happen while you're on Prednisone, and I definitely experienced a bit of that. But I've been off of Prednisone for 6 days now, and have been crying almost cons...

Asacol, Lialda, Rowasa, Canasa, Cortenema, Prednisone...the roids were the only thing that worked and we know how that story goes over the long haul.

Hi..welcome to the forum! I've not used cortenema, but have only used the 5ASA oral/rectal. Have you used any of the 5ASA mesalamine meds yet? That's an option for you rather than the steroids. q...

I think you should try Cortenemas...they are a steroid enema and if you could try to use every morning and night that may help... I would also go up on the 6-MP if you could . 50mg is a fairly low...

Thanks for your responses. The thing that has me puzzled is that the biopsy report says"The changes are suggestive of, but not diagnostic for idiopathic inflammatory bowel disease. The possibility of...

I had not considered Cortenema and my doctor has never brought it up. It seems like a nice alternative to committing to a year of Remicade. I am back on 40 mg of Prednisone for now, and the flare-...

I would try rowasa enema or Cortenema. I would try at all costs to stay away from the very potent meds. Alot of us have had very good luck with rectal meds. good luck

For me, I have to make sure my bowels are totally empty, especially of gas, before I put the enema in. That's not always easy to judge. I use a pillow to prop up my rear end when I put the cortenema ...

* About FAERS: The FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS) is used by FDA for activities such as looking for new safety concerns that might be related to a marketed product, evaluating a manufacturer's compliance to reporting regulations and responding to outside requests for information. Reporting of adverse events is a voluntary process, and not every report is sent to FDA and entered into FAERS. The FAERS database may contain duplicate reports, the report quality is variable, and many factors may influence reporting (e.g., media attention, length of time a drug is marketed, market share). For these reasons, FAERS case reports cannot be used to calculate incidence or estimates of risk for a particular product or compare risks between products.
