I am currently on Petasa. I was on two antibiotics and Prednisone for 6 weeks. I just got off the Prednisone. I really couldn't tell a difference being on the Prednisone and the side effects were worse then the help it was giving me. My Crohns is in my small intestine but they think that I have a fistula. I tried taking Imuran, but again -the side effects were bad. I was sick to my stomach and had chills and fever the whole time I was on it. My GI doctor suggested the remicade, but he didn't give me any information about
it. It has only been 2 months since I have been diagnosed, but I am having a rough time. I work part time, my husband works about
70 hours a week and we have 4 kids. It is really hard for me to keep up with everything - and I am afraid that when school starts back up and their activities all start back up I won't be able to keep up. I have an 11 year old, a 7 year old, a 3 year old and a 2 year old. They take a lot out of you when you are healthy - much less when you don't feel well.
