"My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!"
Love the logic, makes absolute sense
Annie76 -- I really hope it works out for you. My most recent flare up (2nd for me) which was a big one landed me in the hospital and they loaded me up with steriods and anitbiotics. Put me back on Predisone and Enemas, then a week or so later got back into remission. In total lasted about a month. I just started taking Imuran as the Asacol apparently didnt keep me under control as the 2nd flare up was an extremely painful bloody mess. Predisone really works for the flare up but yowza the side effects are terrible. Im extremely irritable now, constant headaches, outrageous food cravings, my ankles are the size of grapefruit (doctor said Pred causes this), and of course have to take Calcium supplement so my bones dont rot away. But im not flared, i just hope this Imuran works so can stay off the Pred.
Good luck Annie, hang in there.
