I was sent home from the ER last night with a script for Vicodin.

Since taking one, I have felt feverish on and off all day. Nothing serious, just a degree or two so far.
I'm not prone to fevers.

If you had to bet....

is this the vicodin?

or just my flare/bacterial infection/unknown cause of d and misery?
27f, dx'd CD July '05 after 6 fistula/abscess surgeries
Remicade '05 through '08, with no other maintenance meds (ah, those were the days, eh?)
Tried Humira. Failed. Tried Gluten Free. Leaning towards Failure there too.
Currently on:
Cimzia (started 2-12-09) Again, not helping much, if at all.
Probiotics, Digestive Enzymes, Forvia vitamins, and calcium chewies
Feeling a bit jaded lately, but trying to keep my chin up.

I don't think the Vicodin would cause your fever. It has Tylenol in it which would fight a fever. I think more than likely it is just current flare/infection. I would put a call into your doc and discuss the new fever. Good luck!

Fever is a tell-tale sign of inflammation too - could just be that spiking up with your disease. Not a doctor, but I doubt it's the vicodin.
**Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2001; diagnosis changed to Crohn's disease in 2009 (but still only impacts colon)
**Asacol (4800 mg daily), 6-MP (100 mg daily -- recently switched from Imuran), Prednisone (8 mg daily...for a few more weeks), Flagyl (250 mg every other day), Nexium (40 mg daily)
GOAL of one day being immunosuppressant free...still working on my doctor on this one but I am a world traveler who desperately wants to go to Africa one day!
