    How long does it take for Humira to start working?

    I've been tapering off prednisone and started Humira about 5 weeks ago. When I was on 40 mg of pred I felt at my best. But now that I'm tapering my Crohn's symptoms are creeping back. Is that normal? I figured the Humira would have been kicking in by now. I'm feeling a little discouraged...

    Can I eat whatever I want now?

    Recommendations on taking Florastor with Vancomycin

    I have been on vancomycin for 3 days now treating C Diff. I really want rid of this bug...as of right now I haven't had diarrhea but I am afraid the vancomycin will kill my good bacteria. Should I go ahead and add Florastor? And if so, take it 3 hrs after vancomycin? Thank you

    I took my last dose of flagyl about 8 hours and now I'm getting cold chills and a slight fever. Could this be my flare not yet cleared? I've been going through this for a month now and can't take it anymore. I'm currently on Apriso as well...any advice would be greatly appreciated.
