Do you have to take alot of regular medicine to help your auto-immune disorder?

Yes! And I HATE it!! I am currently taking 7 medicines(although two are for "when needed") and it's a dailey struggle to remember and then actaully drink the junk down. I really hate taking medicine...especially since I have flared most of 2006 with my Ulcerative Colitis and my medicine isnt working

Right now, I'm not on any. I will probably go back to Prednisone at some point if needed ... and then a disease modifying drug for my RA. I want to breastfeed Jenna for awhile, so I'm going to hold off as long as I can!

No medicines here. In the early days of my diagnosis, I went on a blood thinner but it made my heart race. I probably should look into it now & in 12 years things are sure to have changed.
