    Alternative to Entocort?

    Is entocort EC 3 mg 90 capsules the same thing as budesonide ER 9 mg?? It's like 75 dollars on good rx vs like 500 dollars for the budesonide. My insurance rejected the budesonide so I gave up and went back on prednisone but reading this thread I feel like I gave up too easy and my doctor...

    Combined treatment with Humira & Stelara

    I've heard of people being on stelara and entyvio at the same time. But not stelara and remicade or stelara and humira.

    Ivermectin and Fenbendazole

    I don't think it would help. I personally don't believe Crohns is an infection, although I thought it was at one point. I think all the vaccines we take throughout our life manipulate our immune system into a permanent state of inflammation. That's why anti tnf drugs work so well. But I guess...

    Stelara Support Group

    Ehy Why did you push for every 4 weeks since the initial infusion? Did the initial infusion not even work for your son? How did you know he needed a higher dose?

    So it's been about 3 and 1/2 months of being on Stelara, and it's not looking too good. I had to go back on prednisone this week. Tje crappy thing is the initial loading dose worked. I was able to get off prednisone and put on weight again. I went the entire 8 weeks in great shape. (I did start...

    Being Told to go on Imuran after surgrey

    I've refused Imuran since I was a child. I'd much rather be on only remicade or only humira. In fact I was on remicade for 20 years and still refused to go on Imuran as tje remicade lost its potency. I get warts all over my hands and body that I cannot ever get rid of when I'm on Imuran. Derms...

    Stelara/Ustekinumab Positive Experiences?

    I got my first dose September 27 and I was finally able to taper off the small dose of prednisone I was on for the last 10 months. I took my last prednisone last Wednesday. Things aren't perfect yet but the fact that I was able to get off prednisone let's me know its working. I will be...

    Ivermectin and Fenbendazole

    Lisa, Ivermectin won a nobel prize in 2015 not in animal medicine, IN HUMAN MEDICINE. This is not a horse medicine, it is a pill used in humans that has won a Nobel Prize. https://www.nobelprize.org/prizes/medicine/2015/press-release/ If that's not enough proof, 146,000 PEOPLE, not Animals...

    Covid vaccine 3rd dose?

    Except the vaccination rate is not 90%. The current vaccination rate in Israel for their adult population isn't even that high, I believe it's somewhere in between 80-85%. It's irrelevant though as we are talking about the TOTAL population fully vaccinated, not just the adult population. And the...

    Covid vaccine 3rd dose?

    Sweden just banned the Moderna vaccine for people under 30 because of myocarditis. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.forbes.com/sites/jemimamcevoy/2021/10/06/sweden-halts-moderna-vaccine-for-young-people-over-possible-rare-side-effects/amp/ The CDC is a captured agency of the pharmaceutical...

    Covid vaccine 3rd dose?

    Washington Post is owned by Amazon's Jeff Bezos who has profited immensely off of this pandemic. I would be careful reading any headlines from them. However, read the article. Yes, 80% of adult population is vaccinated, yet Israel had their highest case rate of covid 19 at the end of August. IF...

    Covid vaccine 3rd dose?

    Nope. You are more likely to be hospitalized from Covid if you were vaccinated. You have to look at the numbers coming out of Israel. Because it's the perfect baseline since they took charge and were ahead of every other country in getting its people vaccinated...

    I went 4 months without remicade and went back on it a few times. It's not so cut and dry. Sometimes you build antibodies. Sometimes the drug just stops working.

    Covid vaccine 3rd dose?

    The antibodies drop quickly. That's why they want people to take booster shots 6 months after your second shot. The plan is for you to take these covid shots every single year, like the flu shot. What a great money making operation for these Benevolent never do no harm pharmaceutical companies...

    Covid vaccine 3rd dose?

    Why does Israel have one of the highest rates of infection in the world? And 85% of their adult population is "vaccinated"? Israel is so bad Sweden and Portugal have literally banned Israelis from entering their country.

    Covid vaccine 3rd dose?

    Doctors are REQUIRED by law to report any adverse reactions to a vaccine to the VAERS database. It is a very flawed system but it is the only way we can actually sort of keep track of adverse reactions. There are much better ways to keep track of these adverse reactions but the FDA refuses to...

    Covid vaccine 3rd dose?

    The VAERS data is always notoriously under reported because most doctors dont know about it. Harvard did a study and found that only 1% of vaccine adverse reactions are even reported. I think it's probably a little higher for this covid vaccine thougj since there is such a microscope on it...

    I'm 33 now. But I was trying to get off of remicade in college with diet. I even was researching enteral nutrition back then. But switching remicade from every 6 weeks to 4 weeks gave me another 4 or so years. Then, when it started wearing off again, I finally started making some unique and...
