tinygo, I've been on the Humera for almost 2-yrs now. I've been on and off the Entocort during that time and most recently had to resort to Prednisone. My GI doc tells me she wants to have me do the injection every week now instead of every other week. We'll see what happens. I haven't really had any bad side effects from it. It just hurts like he%$ going in for me. This Cortifoam that everyone is talking about
sounds like a good thing for me to try. I'm going to mention that to my GI doc. I have some really good bum cream that my GI doc gave me, it's at home though so I'll have to get back to you on that question. good luck and I hope you have good success with the Humera. :)
Diagnosed 13+ years ago.
Been in remission for short periods of time but each time I come out of remission my disease seems to have spread. No longer isolated in my ileum, now from stomach down to rectum.
Current Medications: Humera 40mg injections every other week, Imuran 150mg, Levsin, Welchol 625mg, Prednisone 10mg(started weaning off, now going back up in dosing).Canesa suppositories
Misc: I recently joined a local crohns disease support group that meets monthly. It has been great talking to and meeting other people who share the same disease. I hope to continue gaining insight through this forum as well.
