Is it safe to take probiotics when on remicade infusions for Crohn's? Is the immune system too compromised?

Antibiotics

by Dawn Rea
(Pgh, Pa)

My son has an infection and they want to put him on antibiotics but every time we do his Crohn's has a flare up.

He was just in the hospital for his Crohn's due to the wrong diagnosis and wrong treatment.

I don't want history to repeat itself. I heard there is an antibiotic that Crohns patients can use without having terrible reactions.

Charcoal pills?

by Frank
(Nassau & JFK)

I had a re-section in high school.... no further major problems, but the big thing i have is bloating/gas. If trying Charcoal capsules would help.

I've had this problem since my surgery 20 years ago.

I'm currently taking Xifaxan 6 pills a day and Entocort 3 pills a day. for 30 days.. no big differance.

I'm half way trough the 30 days.

If I can just get rid of the bloating....

Acid Reflux

Hi,

Need your advise please. I ate falafel at work last week , very quickly and obviously it's fried , every since last Thursday , I keep burping and feel any food I eat comes up on me and it is painful, feels like I have a ball in my esophagus, trying to eat soft foods and lots of liquids but still not helping.

Any advise of what I can buy now to help me feel better as I used to take Nexium many years ago and it helped but don't want to go back to that

Thanks,
Polina

Use of LDN for Pediatric Crohns

by Katy
(Portland)

Hi I have a 13 year old son who has reacted well to 6Mp although he is not growing.

We are worried about the long term affects of 6MP and are interested in trying LDN.

We were advised to be off dairy when using LDN.

He is already Gluten free and we have tried to minimize sugars. I would love any advice or comments from people who have tried LDN.

Thanks

Colitis Medications or no Medications?

Just had a colonoscopy, tried Predisone, Asacol. Neither worked for ulcerative colitis. Still have diarrhea but dr. wants to start Remicade, the side effects are very scary, also the 6-mp is very scary.

I can live with this now, it is not always good, but will I be doing myself more harm if I do not go on some of this medication???? scared

Charcoal pills for gas bloating ??

by Frank
(Nassau Long Island)

Me  at JFK

Me at JFK

I had a re-section in high school.... no further major problems, but the big thing I have is bloating/gas. If trying Charcoal capsules would help?

I've had this problem since my surgery 25 years ago.

I'm currently taking Xifaxan 6 pills a day and Entocort 3 pills a day. for 30 days.. no big difference.

I'm half way trough the 30 days supply.

If I can just get rid of the bloating.... I've tried Remicade 6 treatments.... nothing. Pentasa... nothing.... I do have a 10 centimeter narrowing in my intestine, so x-rays indicate over the years..

So... I got the charcoal pills on amazon web site, and I will try them when my xifaxin -entocort runs out

Brief history: at age 3 weeks... strangulated herneria, gangrene in small intestine. resection age 3 weeks. fine until age 17, bad belly aches, tests not showing much, Dr;s guessing scar tissue from baby surgery, getting worse, they operate, take out 3 ft terminal ileum, everyone telling me Crohn's, but I really think my problem is my guts are mechanically changed inside. Who knows....

Anyone have idea's on the gas/bloating?
