I hadn't heard about codeine, but my doctor also is concerned about certain pain relievers and the chance that it can slow the colon down too much and lead to toxic megacolon. Tylenol alone does nothing for me, so I was really hoping for other options. My GI let me take Tramadol (Ultracet) for a night or so, but that's it. I'm going to see what they say about Tylenol with codeine.
Prednisone 60 mg (down to 40 starting tomorrow)
