So I began taking 50mgs. of 6 mp 4 weeks ago thanks to flare that started up early in March (thank you seasonal allergies...just my opinion!)
and was using rowasa nightly & canasa daily. I refused to go on the prednisone again so I knew my only choice was the 6mp.
Anyway, my twins have nasty colds, & I started feeling really yucky this afternoon & now I am running a temp of 101.5 with chills,
sore throat & my body aches so bad. I have not ran a temp over 100 in years, all of a sudden I am on 6mp & I feel HORRIBLE
I knew eventually this would creep up on me, with the kids I figure I can't avoid getting sick. I took 2 aspirin b/c I am petrified to take anything else
with this stuff. I am 1 of those people who takes childrens benedryl b/c I can't handle the adult form LOL!
So, question is ...do I call the doctor & let him know even if this turns out to be just a flu?? Especially with having to take care of the kids I need to
avoid any unnecessary trips to the ER...Thanks friends!
