But if it's an option, a change of GI's is indicated in my opinion. Most of us have fired at least one GI in our time.
Left-sided UC diagnosed 2001. Taking Colazal and Imuran, Remicade infusions and moving into remission. Finally off steroids after four years!
Now in remission for almost two years. Remicade has been my wonder drug.
