Hello, I am new here although not newly diagnosed. I have had Crohn's for about 10 years. I seem to go up and down with my disease, all sick or all well until recently. I have been flaring to some degree now for about a year and getting frustrated! All oral medications don't work except for Prednisone and Sulfasalazine. Taken Remicade, just stopped Humira.

Just started tapering the Prednisone yet again, watching my diet and adding in some alternate therapies. If I can get myself off the prednisone I am hoping to try Low Dose Naltrexone but still looking for a doctor to prescribe it!

Hello all, I have been reading your forum for awhile and find some great info on here! Thank you for all the info over the past months!
