I was started on Prednisone and am evidentally allergic to it. Soooo, now nurse says doc says my only alternative is Remicade. I have an appointment to see him in 2 weeks, but that comment really bothers me. It seems like there would be so many other things to try first. I did try Entocort and that also gave me breathing problems and a sore mouth. I'm also allergic to sulfa drugs in the past.
Does this sound like a smart comment from a doc? What might be my response to him? I was only diagnosed last month and so I'm not ready to jump right in yet. I think I'm going to go with the denial/natural remedy approach for a little while.
