Hey Emory -
Are you still in your flare? I thought your new doc was going to get you all well again? Sorry to hear that you are still looking for that magic combo, but so am I. I've been looking at some of your other threads, and that LDN looked promising. I looked it up on google, and it seems hard to get in the low dose, but it also looks like it has some definite upsides. I'll have to ask my GI doc about LDN next time I speak to him.
I'm still trying to taper off the pred, but in the last few days, it seems that Lialda isn't helping me anymore, and I'm looking to move on to something else. I've been thinking that instead of playing around with meds, surgery sounds good, but I don't even know that I'd qualify for it. I just want to get back to feeling normal again. I'm getting sick of being sick all the time.
I hope you start feeling better soon.
Sorry to hijack your thread. lol
