Studying for the bar!!  I will still post and read some posts when I have time but I will surely miss many.  I feel you all know me pretty well here so if there is a post that screams for me to answer it (like how we all wait for Pb4 when someone has a probiotics question) drop me an email w/ a link to the post.  Thanks guys!
27 Year old married female law student (last year!!). Diagnosed w/ CD 4 years ago, IBS for over 10 years before that, which was probably the CD. I am sort of lactose intollerant too but can handle anything cultured and do well w/ lactose pills and lactaid. For crohns I am currently on Pentasa 4 pills/4x day and hysociamine prn. I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13. I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium. Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night.  I take xanax prn for situational anxiety (aka no easy bathroom access).
