Hello! I am a new subscriber, but I have had Crohn's/Colitis for about 7 years. I was misdiagnosed with UC in April 2000 and was hospitilized at the time due to a doctor that just would not listen. I went into remission until the beginning of 2006, when I decided to ignore the symptoms until I just could not stand it anymore. A colonoscopy and biopsy discovered that I had Crohn's/Colitis, 2 severe fissures, alot of ulcers and a lot of other medical terminology that just makes my head spin. I have not been remission since. In the past year I have been on several doses of Pred that start at 60mg and taper. I have tried 6mp, but it made my hair fall out (according to my dr it is a rare side affect). I have tried azasan, but it caused vomiting about 3 months after I started. My doctor wants to try Remicade, but I am a little nervous. The only resource that I have to research is the internet and I have found several people that have had some very bad side affects. I talked with my doctor about what I have read and he says that I am only reading about the bad stuff and that more people than not love the meds. I am a mother of a 2 year old, a wife, and I work full time so I don't have a lot of time on my hands. I need to be for all of these things so can anyone tell me about the side affects (if any) and the process that this entails.
