I can't remember what it's called, (multipak?, dosepak?) but it's 5 days. It comes in a blisterpak and has day 1 (5-5mg pills) day 2 (4-5mg pills) and so on until the 5th day you are down to 5 mg and the next day you go off.
I've used it twice and it didn't help at all. I don't think the initial dose was enough to kick start it, but it did reduce the symptoms a little while I was on it.
Maybe it does come in a 2 week form also...I've never had that one.
Dx'd w/ Crohn's in 1979 at age 13. Bad flare 2008 but no health insurance so I dealt with it. Colonoscopy in July 2009 caused a perforated colon, emergency bowel resection. 2 fistula's, perianal and perivaginal.
Humira, probiotic, a multivitamin, calcium, magnesium, zinc, and fish oil. I also take Tramadol 50 mg and Klonopin (for anxiety) as needed.
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance!
