6-MP/Imuran or Remicade? I am curious to know why your Dr.'s next step is Cyclosporine? I would definitely ask about
the others (if not already). I may be going on Cellcept for my Kidneys and UC, ask about
that drug too.
I would try taking some pro-biotics to help and avoid caffeine and citrus fruits. Caffeine and citrus fruits can exacerbate my symptoms making me go more..........we are all different but those do not help me.
I hope you feel well soon! Take Care!
