It's been awhile. Unfortunately, Stelara doesn't seem to be working for me. I just took my 5th dose about
2 weeks ago in conjunction with Budesonide because my inflamation numbers were so high. about
3 weeks ago I was feeling great and felt like I was going into remission but at the same time I was tapering off of Budesonide. When I transitioned from 3 tablets a day (9Mg) to 6Mg I could start to notice my symptoms slowly returning. The last GI doctor visit I told the doc that I thought Stelara wasn't working well for me and I was told let's try doing every 6 weeks instead of every 8. Well I have a call into the doc even though two weeks ago was my first 6 week shot I can tell my symptoms are returning and I had to go back on Budesonide (9Mg) per day. A few folks on this board have suggested I now try Xeljanz, opinions?
