OK , here is one I haven't read on here. The doctor called today, Wednesday, and told my son to stop taking his Asacol and to come in to discuss the 6-MP meds. My son just started with Remicade Friday, so why is he taking him off of the Asacol already?? hmmm...Matt is a little hesitant because he is doing kinda good now, no bleeding or pain, even before the first Remi dose. I notice that lots of you folks who take the Remicade still take all the other meds along with it. Has anyone heard of this before. Luckily, my son has an appointment with the doctor tomorrow to discuss this. But, hey he is the doctor so I hope this doesn't hurt my son's colon by not having that Asacol.
Good grief, will there ever be a time in the rest of my life I'm not worrying over this son's butt?? I have two other sons and 2 grandsons,,,thank God they are healthy.
If any of you guys got to quit your regular meds while on Remi, I'd sure like to hear from you and how it went.
Thanks again for all your help,,,you are all my only link to get out my questions and frustrations.
