Yup! I have an appointment with my Crohns specialist on Monday and since I just had a resection a couple weeks ago and have no real need for meds at this exact moment in terms of keeping things under control, I'm going to ask him if we can discontinue all of my meds (minus the prednisone obviously since I have to taper off that), see how I feel then slowly add them back in to see exactly the ones I need and which ones are giving me side effects (being tired, depressed, ect...) Im not sure how hes going to feel about
that, but I honestly feel like crap at the moment and I want to know why or whats causing it. Im just sick of being on meds and not knowing what they are all doing to me, I was thrown every drug under the sun during my last flare up and I got all screwed up and havent been the same since, so I honestly think getting off all off them, and letting my body do what it needs to do...flare or not...then slowly and one by one add the meds back to see whats going to work. ~sigh~ Why does this disease need to be so complicated.
