What a day!
I am finally well enough to talk about what happened two days ago.
As you know, my GI told me she wants me to increase my salofalk dose from 2 pills three times a day, to 8 pills once a day. Mother of goodness, that is a handful of pills. Not to mention the calcium (horse) pill, vitamin D (yes I take three of them I live in Canada), the daily vitamin I take for good measure, and the probiotic.
On top of that my Endo specialist wants me to switch off my oral contraceptive and replace it with Visanne – the drug with absolutely no positive reviews. In a single day I flooded my body with drugs. No wonder in a matter of 4 hours I started my period … great!… had diarrhea.. and lucky me… vomiting! ugh.
The good news is that as quickly as it came, it went.
I chalk the period up as ‘Visanne just is what it is’. I came prepared for this one. But I was able to get a hold of my GI who said she wants to determine whether the diarrhea and vomiting are from the prednisone ween or from the salofalk. She suggested I go back to 2 pills three times a day (TID) and wait to see if the symptoms persist. If they do, we will need to top me up with prednisone until I am on the Entyvio.
The short of the long: symptoms have gone away so must have just been too much salofalk at once. Lets see what tomorrow brings.
