Hi Irahuja, I will be happy to answer:
a) Wylosone (prednisolone) may take care of the pancolitis. However a few times colitis is resistant to steroids. You can take it indefinitely, however it is NOT recommended longterm. Nowadays we try to avoid steroids for over 3 - 6 months, and start an alternate medication without longterm side effects.
b) Side effects, many! its a steroid: headache, weight gain (fluid retention), dizziness, mood change, high sugar, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, decrease your immune system, infections...
c) you should not take it for over 6 months if possible, but you need to be on something else to control your disease, depending on the severity such as mesalamine or something stronger.
