Hi, everyone. I've done a lot of research since being diagnosed and usually when I go to my GI appointments I know what the doctor will prescribe. However, I've tried almost all the drug TYPES I've read about and nothing has worked. Now my doctor seems stumped and so am I. I just wanted to see if anyone has any insight or experiences to share that might help. I was diagnosed last year august and I had an abscess and fistula. Metronidazole and Ciprofloxacin gave me horrible side effects so I used Ertapenem which got rid of the abscess and fistula. Since then I tried prednisone (horrible side effects of course), Imuran, Humira, and Remicade. With every one I've tried I had a flare within a month of starting it and the flares have gotten worse and now I have arthritis with the crohns. What could be next?
