Ive been on Apriso for years and it seems not to be working so well anymore as my Crohn's symptoms are returning. I'm going to start Remicade. Should I stop taking Apriso? It would be nice not to have to take them.
Check with your doctor about what you should do.
Crohn’s disease is a chronic (long-term) inflammatory disease of the bowel (intestines). Abdominal pain, diarrhoea and weight loss are the most obvious symptoms. There is no cure for Chrohn's disease.
Medications can relieve the symptoms of Crohn’s disease and reduce the chances that complications develop by bringing the inflammation under control. Many people will need to take medications for extended periods of time, either to bring the disease under control or to maintain remission once the symptoms have disappeared. A combination of medications is often required. The choice of medications used depends on the location of the inflammation, the severity of symptoms, and whether the aim is to treat a flare-up or to prevent further flare-ups.
