Three years ago I was doing okay on Imuan and Entocort but I thought I would give it a try. By the end of the first month I was off the Entocort. By the end of month two I was off the Imuran and heading for remission. I was doing well. Then I began losing the sight in my right eye. I was treated for nearly a year for posterior scleritis, another autoimune disease. My eyesight in that eye was 20/400 and it was now attacking the other eye.
Now, two years later I wear prism glasses ; must take pred, Humira, and Imuran. I can onlly go maybe two months before I need Iron or blood due to occult bleeding. I have had 12 units of blood and four Iron infusions in the last year. That's why I am sitting here at CC.
I think the worst part of switching to LDN is stopping the other meds. The other is that one G.I. said "sometimes strange things happen when you stop Imuran."
