I was diagnosed last year and put on Asacol. Was fine (ish) until Nov when they changed meds to salofalk crystals. Turned me into a zombie! Couldn't eat, drink, sleep and had no idea where I was. Changed back to Asacol and to cut a long story short, ended up in hospital to discover it was the med's that were making me ill. Changed meds again to Pentasa and I was put on a course of steroids and have been fine up until five weeks ago when I started another flare up. Went to see consultant yesterday who has put me back on steroids and will see me in three months. Hopefully steroids will sort me out again but he says if not there is the option of Azathioprine. Anyone been on this and did it work for you?
