Hi..It gives me pains in my throat and I cough after I drink it...so, I'm suspecting I'm allergic to it..so it's off my list.. I don't mind the taste, however.
Yes, the benefits are endless aren't they?
What other meds have you been on....pred isn't the only one and you don't have to take it if you don't want to. Other meds should be exhausted....such as 5-ASA oral and rectal (asacol, pentasa, colazal, lialda, salofalk, rowasa, canasa.....), or the steroid topical oral and rectal (entocort, cortifoam, proctofoam, colocort..etc).
*Heather* Status..Asacol 6 (3 twice daily); enemas every 4th night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotics....(Natural Factors Protec 2 or 3 + 1 or 2 Primadophilus Reuteri Pearls @ bedtime
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux); Effexor XR 75mg(depression); Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
