Hi, recently I've been put on rectal hydrocortisone 10% twice daily to treat an Ulcerative Colitis flare that I recently developed.

Usually I'm put on this for 2 or 3 weeks to treat a flare but this time I was told to take it for 2 and a half months! Is this normal? I'm concerned whether this period is way too long and will lead me to develop any of the nasty side effects listed on the leaflet
