I am new to the forum but not so new to UC. I have been on so many different types of meds and can't seem to find the right combination. I was just wondering what has been successful for everyone. I keep getting info in the mail about how great Remicade is and my doctor called me a "Remicade Failure." What are other options?
This question is for the ladies out there. Anyone notice that the UC acts up when you have your monthly visit? I am on birth control to try and control that, but it isn't 100% perfect. Also, have any of you ladies successfully carried a baby and things went well? What meds were you on and did you try to taper before you got pregnant? My husband are planning to try and have a family in maybe a year and half and I have been trying to taper down now so that I am off and good, but the tapering is not going so well. Any ideas?
Anyone else get tempted by there stash of prednisone in the medicine cabinet? I have finally been off of that for about two months, but it sure beckons me when I feel crappy. I just want to know that I am not alone in this battle.
Thanks guys and I look forward to going through our common struggle together!!
