I took them after my first child was born and I remember getting diarrhea when the Doctor told me I could get constipated. This was before I was diagnosed. I remember the relief when the Dr said I could stop taking them.
Diagnosed w/ Crohn’s Disease March 2007 On 150mg Azathioprine (generic Imuran), Pentasa, & Entocort (take zofran for nausea now)
Diagnosed w/ Fibromyalgia May 2007 also on Soma
Also on Prilosec 2x a day for reflux.
Iron pills gave me the big D too. So, I found a hematologist who measures my iron stores, then gives me an iron infusion. It's not as fast as a blood transfusion, but I'm not receiving anybody elses body fluids. Still, in about three days, I'm ready for the dance.
BTW, I bouught a BMS hemaglobinometer on ebay for under $50. Now i check my own hgb whenever I want.
