He asked the Dr. to lower the intake.Was told No.Please advice.
Long term use has not been a problem in this drug. But I did notice, that they said if you had a chicken pox vaccine 6 weeks prior to taking it you must talk to your doctor. If I am correct the H1N1 shot has a diritive of chicken pox dead virus in it. I do not think he can be vacciniated against the H1N1. Check with your doctor before you have that vaccine.
My doctor had me taking 2 x400mg of asacol 3 times per day.I have cut it down to 400mg twice per day and I have noticed that I actually feel better.This decrease in doseage was my idea and not my doctors.I had to do this due to my lack of insurance.I'm comfortabe with the lower doseage.
