Crohns and medication: I was diagnosed... - Crohn's and Colit...
Crohn's and Colitis Support
Had my diagnosis over 30 years ago. First treatments were Prednisolone (steroids) followed by maintenance dose of Olsalazine. In more recent years treatment has been Azathioprine. I know there are Biologics available now, which some people take. Never been left without meds.
The specialist will not give me anything as he said they are powerfull drugs and some of the meds can give cancer. I suffer with cold sores so was told he couldn't give me meds as it causes cold sores and it would eat my face away. Ect ect. I am now at a loss as what to do. I keep getting crohns flares its driving me mad the paib is terrible.
You need to change Dr asap as this one is not doing you any good !!
Be thankful it was 8 months. It has been37 years for me.
I take crass 3 times a day and questron up to 3 times a day if required usually once it's a horrible drink. Amoxoclav if I get a flare up.
Not too bad at the moment.
You need to go back to your pcp and get a new referral to a Gastro as they need to be managing your Crohn’s. It will not just get better on its own.
Yes, steroids is usual for first line treatment to get your inflammation under control, then you generally are put on a maintenance drug and you are monitored at the very least twice a year if stable, and more if you are not.
It sounds like your specialist has discharged you from care. Call them and ask why?
Not what you're looking for?
