Mon, April 20, 2020 9:17 AM

My son has been on Remicaid - it never worked, than went on Entivio - went into remission for two years than symptom came back, We started Stelera on Jan. 9 th, just finished tapering off steroids. The only side effect he has is bleeding in the stools, not much , should we still continue with Stelera? Ion May 9 ot will be 4 months .

Hi I have been on Stelera for a few months. I had a experience a few spots of blood in my stool, also. I began to add fiber such as metamucil to my diet to prevent hard stools or constipation. I haven't seen any blood so far.
