Hello All

I have just been prescribed Clipper 5mg to take for the next 2 months instead of prednisone (I was taking 10mg a day of this). Does anyone know about this drug?

Thanks

I tried to look this up online and couldn't find any info on it. I personally have never heard of it. Where do you live, are you in the US? I would like to hear more about what this drug does.

I am based in Spain at the moment and had not heard anything about it either.

I have had a look online and found this link about it...

Must be a European medication, I haven't heard of it hear in the US. I see my doc in about 10 days I am going to ask him about it.

Wow! I just read the link you gave Steph. I think this clipper stuff sounds wonderful, because it works directly on the colon...

I know it's not here in the States yet, which is a shame. My other ? would be does it only work on the colon, or does also help
the small bowel? Mmmm interesting!!!
