motival for crohns
"motival"for crohns. After reading through the stories of how we all live with Crohns i have yet to read if anyone else has been prescribed Motival(tablets). These tablets were prescribed to me about 10 years ago when i had gone through the whole weight loss, abdominal pain usual routine. After barium x-rays and a camera down the throat the consultant said to me there was no sign of a flair up whatso-ever. Yet the pain was exactly the same,i was astonished to say the least. Motival is prescribed for anxiety, something which i was not conscious of that i even had. Laid back was my middle name so it didnt make sense. Most people align Crohns with stress and depression which is somewhat true, but anxiety(subcontiously) which you are not aware of is what really gets the guts rumbling. Now everytime i even start to get little tell tale signs of any oncoming problems i take a tablet which seems to calm the area completely. I have not had an all out attack since and take no medication on a daily basis."Motival" has replaced steroids for me and i very rarely even need to take them.
