Just wanted to say hi to everyone. My name is Faith, I've had UC for about 4years. This forum has been great.Lots of great information. I'm living in Florida right now, the doctor situation here has a lot to be desired. Used to live in New York.What a difference! Sometimes I feel like getting on a plane and making an appointment with a GI doctor up north. Very pill happy here. Pill for this and a pill for that.
All the meds I've tried none have been sucessful,Colazal,Asacol and pred. Prednisone worked great while I was on it. Side effects were bad. Soon as I weaned off back to square one. Just started Azathioprine 50mg. How much is needed and how much time before this drug starts working? I go for a blood test next week. I'm little nervous about taking this one. I tried a lot of the herbal remedies out there. Free samples of Haldi and digestive advantage are on the way. As soon as I get them, I'll give them a try. Thanks again for all the great advise and information. Makes you feel like your not alone.
Good Health to all, Faith
