Hi everyone.  I'm new to this forum and glad I've come across it.


I had a Chrohn's flare-up in late December of 2009.  I haven't had one in almost five years.  My doctor put me on Prednisone in conjunction with what I have been on for a long time, which is Sulfasalazine.  I'm down to half a pill of Prednisone.  In the meantime, I heard about Glutagenics from another doctor I tried, and bought a bottle.  In the last week, I've noticed increased pain that I haven't had.  I suspect that the Glutagenics is reacting with the prescription drugs.  Does anyone know anything related to this?  Does anyone know how long you are supposed to take Glutagenics?


Ideally,  I would like to go off my meds completely and manage my Crohn's with probiotics only.  But quite honestly, I am nervous about doing that until I know for sure exactly how to do that.


Thanks for your time.

I know nothing about Glatagenics and Crohns. But I am putting a link up for you to read about what was told UC21 about stopping meds and what the consequences were for folks who stopped their meds. Not a wise idea in my humble opinion. Good luck!

I agree with the others. Never change or quit meds without consultation. I use a powder called Metagenics Glutagenics 3 times a day.It is made by Nutricology. It is beneficial for my intestinal wall but I am not on prescriptions, so my personal experience won't help you. Better to play it safe and check with the docs. Good luck.
