My GI wants to switch me from the 250mg Pentasa to the 500mg to cut down on the number of pills, but so far I'm resisting. The 250mg are big enough, thank you!
At the moment I take:
8 Prednisone, 16 Pentasa, 3 Flagyl, 2 Cipro, 3 Imuran, 2 Rocalcitrol, 1 potassium, 1 B-complex, 1 probiotic, Ambien as needed, Tylenol as needed, and 1 Actonel on Saturdays. On bad days it can be as much as 43 pills. Yes, I rattle when I walk! I have my second Remicade infusion this afternoon, and I'm hoping to be able to start my Prednisone taper, so fewer pills soon!
