I was just wondering if anyone else is on Methotrexate. its not fda approved for colitis, but is for chrons. My doctor said that they've been having some success with it for UC though. I was on 6mp but got severly sick after a week. The enzyme thats supposed to help your body with the medication was extremely low, so i cant go back on that... Prednisone works but as soon as i taper off it i flare again. this disease is so frustrating. I only got diagnosed a year ago and it feels like this whole year has been one big flare. Anyway.. Monday will be my 9th injection of Methotrexate. I still feel like im not getting any better. I still have abdominal craping.. urgency... blood in my stools.. and im still going to the bathroom what feels like a gazillion times a day. Does anyone know if its supposed to be taking this long to work or if it even does? Also im thinking about remicade or even surgery. Does anyone have any tips, stories, or facts about any of these. i need all the help i can get right now!
