Hi everyone. Just found this board and hope that someone may be able to answer my question(s). My husband was diagnosed last September and had a course of steroids which has limited effect. Azathioprine didn't agree with him at all and he reacted badly. During the last week of steroids he had a hospital appointment and the doctor asked him to try maselazine enemas. Within 3 days he was much improved and this continued until last week whe on another hospital appointment he was told to come off the enemas and start a course of methotrexate. He has been off the enemas for a week now and he is in pain and has started to bleed. He was told that the methotrexate will take up to two months to have an effect, so to my mind he could be left without any effective medication for up to two months. My question is can he take the enemas as well as the methotrexate ? Does anyone know why they would make him stop a medication that was working? At the moment he is showing all the signs of heading towards another flare.
Thanks for reading, sorry if a bit long winded.
