Azulfidine

  I have been taking 2 500 mg tablets twice a day for alleged Chrohn's for 33 years  New GI doctor suggested I do not have Chrohn's but severe irritable bowel syndrome.
   I have been suffering for 3 years with thick sticky saliva and horrid taste. Also have esophageal spasms. Take 10 mg of Elavil. However bowels were regular and in general doing ok.
   Dr took me off Azulfidine. Titrated down over 4 weeks. When got off bowels went haywire. Alternating diarrhea and constipation. Spasming. Consistency of stool, color etc all changed. Every day is a mystery.  But taste in my mouth significantly improved.
    Anyone experience this from stopping Azulfidine.
  





    
    GI doc took me off Azulfidine. Went off slowly and titrated down over 6 weeks.
