Steroids can make you feel pretty crummy while they do their job. Hopefully they do their job though and you start feeling better.

Welcome to the community. In my opinion, you may want to discuss going on a stronger medication than Pentasa with your doctor considering your symptoms.

I wish you well.
It's good to be back
