7 month flare here, failed Humira, heading to 2nd dose of Stelara next week ----- I see some moderate improvement here at 7 weeks, should I be happy with that? I thought Stelara should show results WITHIN 8 weeks. Anyway -
With continued urgency and cramping, doc is switching me from Lialda to Sulfasalazine.
Anyone else out there tried this? Looks like an older drug, that doesn't make it bad, but seems like a lot of potential side effects. I've never had issues with mesalamine in any form but she believes this is "stronger".
Consult with the head of GI at University of Chicago on the 15th, FINALLY appointment for second opinion with my old GI on 22nd (dropped him due to geography, 1 hour away is tough in the car with a flare!) but present GI is rather unresponsive and does not explain well :--(
