I'm still new on here and don't post much. I love reading everyone's posts though. Helps alot.
So I just got back from my doctors. I've been taking Entocort and Cipro for about 7 months. I was just diagnosed in Jan. 07. These medications were helping me greatly for the first 3 months. It was awesome! But now they don't seem to be helping at all.
My doctor wants to put me on 6MP. I've read a bit about it and honestly I'm scared. I don't like the whole blood cancer risk. I don't want to be on anything heavy like that.
She also gave me the option of being on Orencia which is a study drug. It's out on the market for some sort of arthritis. It's being studied for CD. There is unknown side effects, which kind of freak me out. Also, the only reason she gave me that option is because she knows I don't have insurance and because it's a study drug all the blood work, medications and Drs. visits would be free.
Anyone heard of Orencia being treated for CD? What about 6MP....anyone having that help them or have expirience w/it in general?
