Wanted to say thanks for the feedback regarding my niece. My family was here in Maine visiting from Oklahoma and my niece had started to flare pretty bad.  We ended up in the ER and she was started on meds Prednisone and antinausea.  Took her about 3 days to feel farely good and we enjoyed the rest of their visit with us!  Thanks for quick responses!
Diagnosed with CD 2006.  Refused to take meds until recently started Colazal. 
 Currently on Prednisone 40mg. Tapering down, now on 20mg.
Colazal 3xday, Antioxidant strips
 Off of the Prednisone!!

So glad your niece is feeling better. Crohn's can be such an unpredictable pain in the A!

(you should see me when I travel, I'm like a walking pharmacy, "just in case") LOL
33 years old, dx with Crohn's in 1998. Currently on :
Clofazimine 100mg daily,
Rifampin 600mg daily, and Clarithromycin 2 tabs daily
and Cipralex 10mg/day for anxiety.
Hydroxyzine, percocet, Ativan as needed.
5g pharmaceutical grade Omega 3's, 1000IU's Vitamin D3 daily
2 Perianal fistulas, and 1 more suspected. Crohn's only at end of colon, cecum. Remi, Asacol, Salofalk, Imuran, Humira did nada. Built immunity to long-term Cipro use, which also induced panic attacks.
