Can you take lialda or one of the other oral mesalamine medications in addition to your rowasa enemas and budesonide? If I were you I would start that now......
....It sounds like there are a few things you can add to your current regimen before moving up the med ladder, but I would get the ducks in a row for the xeljanz (or imuran if you want to continue the budesonide for a while until imuran is in your system), while you try those things.
I am taking 4.8 gms of Lialda along with nightly Rowasa enemas and Budesonide 9mg. My last scoping was 2 months ago, and there was activity throughout my colon. Just before my scoping, I tried Canasa, but it made things worse, immediately. Seems it's specifically for the rectum.
I've been on the Budesonide for almost 12 weeks, and will finally
see my GI doc this Friday. I'm much improved, but not in remission yet.
Xeljanz may be my next step. What ducks do I need to align??
6-MP was suggested by a friend, but I don't know anything about
Thanks for your advise!
