I have been on xifaxan, three pills a day, for probably 2 years. I have talked with 2 ob/gyn's and had one of them talk directly with my GI. I sent a couple messages to my GI this morning asking a bunch more questions. My sister-in-law will welcome any kid that comes her way. They are on their fourth kid. They wanted five and this fourth one just came earlier than they expected. I was just trying to say that I wish I could just go off the pill whenever I felt my husband and I were ready. We feel that as a couple we are ready, but my body is not yet. That is what gets frustrating. I guess the conversations will just continue with my doctors. Hopefully we can come up with a solution. Thanks for the help.
Diagnosed with UC September 2005.
Once told after a colonoscopy that I had Healed colitis, I beg to differ.
Meds & other things tried:
Colazol-once added to my allergies because it just didn't work right
Azathioprine-have been on this the longest
Prednisone-can never seem to get off it
Xifaxan-I have a problem with C-diff, so this anitbiotic controls that-PRICEY!!!
Trivora Tablets-birth control that stopped working properly
Necon-birth control supposedly for people with other diseases
Various Vitamins-made me puke
Miralax-to keep me regular, but made me crampy
2000 calorie diet-to get my weight up, didn't work, can't gain weight
