Went to the GI yesterday. I asked him about
Lialda again. He never wanted to take me off the Asacol. Been on it 8 years and it is obviously not working. So we did switch to Lialda. Instead of 12 pills a day I will only take 4. Has anybody had any luck on Lialda? I am hoping it will help. I am also back on the Rowas at night. I have been able to keep it in every night this week. I will use the Canasa in the morning.
I am really hoping these changes along with the weekly Humira will do the trick. I am down to 25mg of Pred this week and can tell a difference from being up higher. I can't wait to be off it though. Only started for the pregnancy and now that is gone.
I also got him to write the script for the VSL#3 DS. Insurance still won't pay.
