gumby - I don't respond well to Prednisone, but I DO WONDERFULLY with my Remicade, but that's just me... Prednisone should be a short-term fix, in my opinion, as the long term effects are quite terrible for some of us.
In fact, Remicade is about
the ONLY crohnie med that I've tolerated thus far.
kgirlie - depending on the severity of your symptoms - maybe it's time to talk to your doc about
a biologic (like Remicade or Humira), or maybe something like Purinethol or Imuran?
If the symptoms are more minor (I can always hope), maybe some changes to your daily routine would help? Like adding a probiotic, exercise... things that don't SEEM like they would make a big difference but really do...
Just thinkin' out loud. Good luck to you!
26f, dx'd CD July '05 after 6 fistula/abscess surgeries
Remicade only, every 16 weeks.
Digestive enzymes, and probiotics.
Doing pretty darn good, all things considered.
