Came from my GI today. I have been on Colzaol for about 3 weeks and nothing better. Still blood.

Doctor says I should try remicide or IMuran.

Remicide is very expensive

How well does Imuran work?


He says I should get off the colzal

but should I keep the preds?

You shouldn't get off the Prednisone without your doctor's consent. I have never tried Imuran but heard it takes a few months to see results on it. You could ask your insurance exactly how much your co-pays for Remicade would be. For me, it was only $20 a treatment. It worked pretty good for a while.
