Can anyone give me suggestions on what my next step would be. I have been diagnosed with proctitis of the lower colon area and all meds that i seem to be taking don't seem to be giving me any relief. I still have those sudden urges to go to the br, but when i go i mostly have mainly loose stools. i am slowing weaning myself down off of prednisone, taking Humira (40mgs) injections every other week, taking asacol 3 times a day
(3 pills/3 times per day), and taking a canassa (1000mg) supository enema at night, but with no relief.
It is getting to the point where somebody i know who also has cd, was advised by their dr. to see their gp and maybe get some kind of medicine that relaxes you. Has anybody out there ever been like on Valium,
Xanax or anything of the like to help relax you. I periodically have taken Darvisette, but lately that to has stopped working.
I am at the point that i am starting to get very frustrated because nothing seems to be working for me. Has anybody ever been through a situation like this before ?
Any suggestions would be helpful and greatly appreciated.
