Hi festeris...I am in the same boat as you right now. My GI is pushing Remi for me also but I am having a hard time accepting the fact I would have to have IVs. I hate needles....everything about
needles. I could get use to the fat it would just take me a while to do so. I work full time and have 2 boys ages 1 and 5 and just am not ready to do that yet. I am trying to get colazal covered by my insurance but they will not because mesalamine didn't work for me and they say most likely colazal won't work for me either. Anyways I am looking in to the pros and cons also. I just want to be able to get off prednisone.
Colonoscopy on 4/23-diagnosed with severe ulcerative proctitus
12 Asacol/day - don't think it actually is working
proctofoam at night
prednisone (10 mg) tapering - upped it again til august 6
Azathioprine (50 mg) serum sickness reaction
pentasa didn't work
canasa didn't work
Waiting to feel healthy again and waiting on the next plan of action since can't take azathioprine....
