... was hospitalized for a week. Start remicade infusions thursday. Im worried. (Could have died from 6mp. My BP was down to 60 over 40,HR 44,couldnt walk,convulsions, 104 temp.) Does anyone know if remicade and 6mp have anything incommon,besides being an ummine surpressant? Currently on asacol 4,800mg, prednisone 40mg, omeprazole 20mg, metoprolol tartrate 50mg, lisinopril 10-12.5mg, and florastor
I was on 6MP for about 10 years. It saved my life! I could not stand another round of Prednisone and my gastro. wanted me to consider colectomy. I had had uc for over 20 years without remission. The 25% risk of colon cancer was enough for me to take 6MP. Had little hope and had talked to the surgeon about the internal pouch option. A few months on 6MP and I was symptom free. After a few years we tapered down. Have been about 5 years off any med and just had a minor flare. 2 months on Uceris or its compound and I'm fine. New doc has me on a basalamine and pantoprazole for maintenance. After years of prednisone side effects I will never take it again though it is a wonder drug for some.
