I thought I would share this...many of you probably already know this but it may be good for some newbies to crohns. My sister in law shared it with me and I found it to be helpful.
Amanda: age 23 happily married for 6 years
Mother to Kirstiana 5, Savannah soon to be 2, Halen 11 weeks
I have had symptoms since a young child but I was FINALLY diagnosed 1/14/2008!
- Currently taking: Pentasa 500 mg 2 tablets 3 times daily Darvocet 1 tablet every 6 hours as needed (I can't take due to watching my children it makes me drowsy and sick) Prednisone 60 mg to decrease by 10 mg weekly until down to 2.5mg Ranitidine 300 mg 1 tablet twice daily Women's one a day multi-vitamin with double the calcium once daily
I have no family or friends around me other than my husband and children so I very greatly appreciate this group and i'm hoping to become a regular. You are all great people! (I also need to add my father in law does live fairly close as well..I don't want to leave him out.)
