Need some help. Recent flare with esophogus and mouth ulcers/eye inflammation has me back on prednisone. Taking 50mg Imuran too since Jan. Bad D and intestinal cramps, low grade fever. Hosptization for Ilitieus in Jan. Allergic to asprin and sulpha drugs, have had an allergic reaction to Asacol and then raised liver enzymes with 6MP (100 mg) so went off both.
Saw GP today and GI next week. Having C-Diff culture and stool sampels taken to rule out infection. My GP said the problem I have with Crohn's meds is that all the oral Rx are asprin or sulfa based (allergic!) and then the others are infusion and I dont' have insurance until I qualify in 3 months for Obama's national high risk pool.
Any RX ideas I'm not thinking of? Any others with ulcers in mouth and esphogus? My GP did give me "Magic Mouthwash" .. .heard of it? Any other help aids?
