Hey everyone- wish me luck. I've decided to go off Imuran. The drug has worked well for me but my husband and I have decided to try and have a baby so I decided it would be best to not be on it. It was tough decision, but I'm crossing my fingers that my worst flare has passed and I'll be able to make it for a few years without. I've upped my dose of Asacol and have extra enemas just in case!
Pancolitis since October 2004
Currently experiencing symptoms- blood and mild pain. Have started ANOTHER round of enemas.
My drugs of choice: Asacol 2-3 times a day (if I remember), Imuran, Canasa suppositories every other day, probiotics, fish oil, Iron, multi-vitamin
My other therapies of choice: Yoga, walking, my animals, and whining.
