Hi all, looking for some advice/experiences to help if possible...
Struggling to get current flare under control...have been taking 40mg pred foam, 10mg oral pred and 4g pentasa daily for 4 weeks now. Still bleeding and frequent toilet trips etc etc but, although these have lessened somewhat, I'm still in a lot of pain and discomfort. Just had a call from GP - IBD clinic have finally been in touch and suggested adding budesonide (hope that's the right spelling) into the mix. Recommended to use 9mg of budesonide daily, continue with the 10mg oral pred (to reduce to 5mg after a week if all goes well) and stop the pred foam altogether as of today (pretty sure the foam was never really getting to all of the inflammation - hard to tell without a scope). Anyone any info on what I can expect from the budesonide? Good/bad? I've been off my work now for 4 weeks and going a bit stir crazy so hoping for good news so I can go back soon! Thanks in advance, Mel 😊
