Just wanted to mention at my last GI's appointment in June (regular 6-month follow up) I asked him to put me on LIBRAX, a drug I took before I was diagnosed with Crohn's when they thought I just had IBS.
I'd been in a flare since this January. Worst one to date. A quick 5-week round of a Prednisone taper in April started to make me feel a bit better. But since being on the Librax in June, about 3 weeks into taking it, I started feeling so much better. My stools have been more formed than they have in over a year and I've been more "relaxed", which is part of what Librax does.
Just wanted to share that info.
