I received a call from Michelle today regarding the Shire Pharmaceutical roundtable discussion this October.  She only wanted to know if I would be interested in going.  I also got the call last October but was unable to go. 
 
Anyone else???

Is it for a particular drug? I take Pentasa which is made by Shire. No one has ever contacted me but I would be interested in something like this. Is it UC only? I have crohns.
26 Year old married female law student.  Diagnosed w/ CD 3 years ago, IBS for over 10 years before that, which was probably the CD.  I am sort of lactose intollerant too but can handle anything cultured and do well w/ lactose pills and lactaid.  For crohns I am currently on Pentasa 4 pills/4x day and hysociamine prn.  I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13.  I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium.  Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night.  I alos take a birth control pill to allow some fun in my life.

No, no particular drug.  I took a survey online regarding Lialda (I have since switched back to Colazal) and that is how they contacted me.  But it doesn't matter what medicines you take (I am not on any from Shire).  I am not sure if it is for UC only.  They had this same thing last October in Philadelphia but I was unable to attend.  She said it will be in October again and somewhere on the east coast or possibly Dallas.  She is going to call me back in a month to set things up.  I am very excited to do this!

Well if you wouldn't mind, when you do speak with her, ask if she needs anyone w/ crohns. If so give me her contact info. My email is listed in my profile! Thanks! One more question, is it during the week or on the weekend? I am not sure how much school I could miss.
