I took about month ago 2 iron ampul at once
since then I have severe flare with blood
remicade isnt enough to stop this flare
can I take predinzone with remicade??
I know that Steroids always help me even in hard flare

pentasa 4 gram a day
now on remicade after the fifth infusion

And if that's not of a suggestion, I'll add RECTAL MEDS!!!!!!

*Heather* Status: mild flare enemas tapered to every 3rd night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~UC meds: Asacol (3 x2 daily); Salofalk enemas nightly for flares & taper to maintenance 
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed; Ranitidine (reflux);  Effexor XR 75mg(depression);  Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma) 
~vitamins/minerals/supplementsProbiotics....(Natural Factors Protec, Primadophilus Reuteri Pearls). @ bedtime
~various digestive enzymes as needed
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS"  worth it !!!
