Well after 18 yrs with this disease(ulcerative colitis), my body has decided to not let prednisone and asacol work on the flare-ups.
I have tried SCD and while I lOVE it and the way I feel on it, it did not help my flare at all. I have tried naturopath dr’s and even tried smoking. SO now it’s time to “roll out the big guns” and PRAY. I am currently seeing 2 doctors. One wants to start Imuran, one wants to go right to Remicaide (probably because he helped design and build the infusion center at the digestive disease center). The Remicaide Dr informed me that it only has a 65-75% chance of success. I am confused and don’t know which one to try first. Can I stop one and pick up the other if one isn’t working? Which one should I start first?
