What meds are you on and why is your doctor pushing Remicade already? Is he ready for a cruise? My first course of action is prednisone, 6MP (which was just increased to 100 mgm, not too happy about that but keeping close tabs on my CBC and pancreatic enzyme levels), Cort enemas, Colazal and Canasa. Long history of UC..eleven years...flares getting closer together, but I see where I am at fault sometimes.
