I AM 50 YR OLD MALE WHO HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH CD, THEN UC. I KNOW THAT THEY ARE ALL RELATED IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER AS FAR AS WHERE IT IS IN THE COLON.
MY QUESTION IS THAT I HAVE TAKEN SOME MANY MEDS THAT NOTHING REALLY SEEMS TO BE WORKING PRESENTLY.
I AM CURRENTLY TAKING 12 PILLS OF ASACOL A DAY, PLUS HUMIRA INJECTIONS ONCE EVERY OTHER WEEK, BUT MY SYMPTOMS DON'T SEEM TO BE IMPROVING. I HAVE NO MAJOR CRAMPING OR
BLOOD IN STOOL, BUT MOVEMENTS ARE VERY SMALL AND SOMETIMES DIAREHA. I HAVE TRIED ENTOCORT, BUT THAT DIDN'T DO ANYTHING FOR ME SO NOW I AM TAKING 25MG OF PRESNISONE A
DAY TO CUT DOWN ON SUDDEN URGES AND CONSTANT STRAINING. WHEN I DO HAVE HAVE MAJOR DISCOMFORT I TAKE DARVISETTE FOR THE PAIN, BUT SINCE THIS MEDICATION HAS A CONSTIPATING
EFFECT, I AM RUNNING OUT OF OPTIONS.

DOES ANYBODY HAVE A ANSWERS OR SUGGESTIONS !!

confused

Welcome
I dont have the same prob you do I have constant D all the time ..........always have even with the Opiates I am on .......
Are you watching the foods you are eating and drinking lots of water .......I am honestly only throwing a few things out there as like I said I do not have this but I wanted to at least say a hello you and let you know you are being heard..........

What about a a stool softener....or something like that

Has your GI got any ideas for you??

I am sure more ppl will post as this is slower here during wknds and holidays and many have more expoerience with your issue than I so I bow to them .......

I know we all have this DD but each are still different in some aspects ......

Please stay with us this is a great place for support and caring
