I have been battling this flare for the last 8 months and it has finally taken it's toll on me emotionally and physcologically. My doc has recommened taking Cipralex 10mg once a day to deal with depression and hopefully get me feeling better. I know depression and anxiety can not possibly be helping my flare up.
I'm wondering if anyone else here has used this drug or any other anti-depressents. What success did they bring you if any? Did they help with the UC or just with the depression?
29 year old male, diagnosed after bad flare in Summer 2005, quickly brought into remission by pred and salofalk. 2 years symptom free after that!!
Currently in a flare since summer 07 - I desperately miss remission!!!
Current Meds: finally down to 5mg Pred (after months of 40mg), 2000mg salofalk, calcium supplements, Pantoloc, Buscopan, Clonazopam, Cortenema
Started 100mg Imuran Jan 15/08 - no noticeable effect yet...
