Thanks to everyone for helpful replies to my post a few days ago about this new horrible flare. I’m three days into oral budesonide extended release and waiting on paperwork for Entyvio since I appear to be mesalamine intolerant.
I’m wondering if it’s okay to start curcumin while on steroids? I can’t find research on known interactions online. Similarly, would slippery elm negatively affect absorption? I’m also dealing with miserable reflux (also new in the past few months) and would love to get off ranitidine (it’s back on the market in Canada and my doctor insisted on it. I know it’s still pulled elsewhere).
I know stress is taking a huge toll here. Trying to do what I can to minimize that and focus on healing while also not just withdrawing from all the things that make me feel purpose in life, you know?
