3200 mg Asacol + 500mg suppositories as needed
Digestive Enzymes
Probiotics + Bio Yougurt Discontinued as I may have dairy allergy
1000mg Fish Oils a day Holding off on these for a little bit!
Aloe Vera Juice
Anti Fungal Supplements
Nexium 20mg a day

Asacol 9 tablets daily
Canasa PRN
Prednisone- 30 mg as of 6/8/07, Increased to 50mg 6/18/07, 40mg and holding!
Lialda 4 tablets daily

i do! Im not sure if they were related to the prednizone, but now im off pred completely. for a few weeks I'd get them 2-3 times a week--it felt as if i'd slept too long, stared at a monitor all day, and seemed to be brought on by sun exposure--even a few minutes. Because of that I wondered if they were heatstroke/sunstroke headaches because they felt very similar...but now you got me thinking about the fact that I waaas low dose pred at the time about 5mg-10mg daily.
