Medications

What medications are you on? I am currently on 20mg prednisone, 40 mg humari, 625 mg welchol, pantriprozole, omperazole, Zyrtec and a blood thinner along with high blood pressure and sinus meds and phenagren for severe nausea. I feel like a walking pharmacy and get strange looks from people when they see the amount of meds I'm on.

I can understand about feeling like a walking pharmacy. I was hoping to cut down on some of my supplements. But, with things working the way they are it's better not to mess with it. Hopefully, even though you're on as many as you are they're working for you too...

I understand that feeling. I just got diagnosed a few weeks ago and went from an iron supplement to three medications for Crohn's and a few other supplements.

Hi Mel. I am also on quite a bit of meds 25mg prednisone, 150mg aza, 10mg ambien, xanax as needed, percocet 3 times a day and iron infusions once a week . Tomorrow I'm seeing a doctor for MMJ and on the 9th I see my GI who may add humira to the mix ! I really wish I would find the right combo of meds to put me in remission. I know where your coming from- I also feel like a walking pharmacy.
