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.
Diagnosed in October, 2004 at age 33.
Current Rx's: Colazal (generic), Nexium (generic), Ferrous Sulfate, One-A-Day multivitamin, Culturelle Probiotic, Omega-3 Fish Oil, Vitamin D, Vitamin A, Calcium-Magnesium-Zinc, Cranberry pills
Secondary conditions: mouth ulcers, joint pain, swelling ankles, extreme fatigue
Previous/occasional Rx's: 20mg Prednisone taper, Flagyl, Levaquin
No surgeries to date
