Hi all, I was just curious who all takes prescription pain medication for Crohn's or Crohn's-related illnesses (arthritis, etc). After going to the ER last week, I got a script for Vicodin, and I've been taking 1-2 daily, mainly for my back or tummy pain, but I've noticed it has helped my symptoms get better overall. I guess because I struggle with D, and I know hydrocodone is known to slow the bowels and sometimes cause constipation in some people. I am not constipated, but it has definitely slowed things down a lot! I feel great!
Currently taking: Humira 40mg/every other week, Zoloft 50 mg/day, vitamins and supplements
Have taken: Cyclosporine, Pentasa/Asacol, Aciphex, Imuran, Sulfasalizine, Cipro & Flagyl, Prednisone, various pain med's, Xanax
Surgeries: Appendectomy 2001, Ileocecotomy 2007
