I get diarreah bad for a few days(as if I ate a ton of ice or drank a ton of milk, something that doesn't agree with my gut, you can hear the diarreah running through my colon, making its way out) light headache,tired (for two days) and burning in my stomach and guts for days!! The diarreah reopens my fissure :( I go back on pred and cipro, it s like a cycle. I know I had a uti after my last infusion, cipro helps me a ton!!! My UTI could be caused by me pooping my pants in the car and having to sit in it until I get home to clean and shower? My rectal doc says people take cipro for weeks for fissures . He approves of it.
I ve had all my loading doses weeks, 0,2, 6 and 8 now I'm on every eight weeks, no improvement yet. The company website says stop at week 14 if no improvement where I've read it take ups to week 52 for people to achieve remission, those who did anyways.
Anyone experiencing side effects
UC since '05 and DX with chronic Lyme's in '10. Lialda, lexapro, trying Uceris .5asa never put me in remission. I eat well, exercise , pray and use my faith, but sometimes you still need medication. I tried without it, bad idea.i'm not out trying to save the world, just trying to make a difference, with a smile and a positive attitude :) a fighter in life!
