Suggest treatment for side effects of Remicade
My email address is YYYY@YYYY
My age is 63, I was diagnosed in 2005 with Crohn's Disease, started Remicade in 2009 and also take Imuran since 2005. I had IBS before Crohn's for several years. All my life I have been very small , I am only 4'11" and until I started the Remicade always weighed approx 105-120 lb. While I have taken Remicade I have gained 40 lbs ( weighing 110 at time started it) . Is there a possibility the Remicade or Imuran has been the reason for weigh gain and the fact I can not lose. I have problems with my energy and fatigue and am inactive. Thank You, in advance. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Hello and thank you for asking
Some of your symptoms like fatigue,loss of energy,hair loss,rashes,weight gain are the side effects of medication that you are taking for your diseases.There exists the possibility that those plaques in your scalpe are from psoriasis,but if you are not conserd your doctor can take material form those plaques for more tests
If the sids effects from the medications affects your daily life you should consult your doctor for the possibility of dose redaction.
