any one on these drugs and it was like i was fine for about 6-7 months and then out of now where vomitting, diaherra, pains, gurgling nosies and running to the bathroom.  I seriously thought these painful shots i have to endure are supposed to make people go into remission and steriod free.  Now im back up on my steriod.  any of other drugs out their that i can mention to my dr to take.  I have tried imuran, asocal.  usually steriod work but im sick of being on them these shots are supposed to put you into remission.  I think catching the flu triggered off something in their to go nuts and just wont calm down been 1 week and 1 day with just diaherra, feeling sick.  this happen to anyone else.  Just feel most of the time im just to fatigued and run down to fight it.

Sorry you're not up to par. Yes, even with my cocktail I occasionally flare. Welcome to my world, sorry you're having to visit. Retrace what you are eating/drinking and try a day or two of liquids only and slowly try to introduce pureed foods and then slowly introduce solids again. Stay away from fiber while doing this and see if that puts you back on track. Also, bananas, white rice and applesauce helps get you through the tough times. Bananas are binding you know!

I was actually wondering the same thing myself. I have been on bi-weekly Humira for 6 months (plus 6mg. Entocort) now and up until a few weeks ago was touting about the wonders of modern medicine because I really felt better than I had in a long, long time. But now periods of feeling well are becoming less frequent and not lasting as long. I dread the thought of bumping up my Humira to weekly because the shot is so painful plus my insurance co-pay is quite high. I too, am just exhausted. Sorry I can't be of any help with your problems Trsora, but it seems we're in the same boat. Does anyone have any advice???
