What else has he been on?
Sorry I didn't list his Meds. He has had this since he was 14. He is 19 now and has been on many Meds. He began with asacol. It worked for about
6months then he was on suppositories with the asacol. That seemed to work for a couple years. He began to have issues again so the doc gave him enemas instead of the suppositories. He changed the asacol to lialda and stopped the enemas he was Also put on 6mp which I don't think ever worked.
Unfortunately, the only thing that seems to work is the nasty prednisone. It has ruined his body with horrible stretch marks.
I need to stop being so long winded.
His current Meds are below
6mp 2pills daily
Lialda 4pills daily
Prednisone 10mg daily
Bentyl 2 pills twice/day
Nexium 1pill daily
Allergy med 1pill daily
He went to doc today and that's why the Simponi question. Doc said that if this doesn't work we should think about
surgery. Please give comments and suggestions to a worried and probably neurotic mother
