Today I received my medication for my EOE Disease. The idea is that the Budesonide will reduce the inflammation in my Esophagus. Initially the Dr. gave me a inhaler to use with spray medication. However at $400 for a 4 week prescription my Mum declined the medication and we requested something a little more affordable, especially due to the fact that I may have to take this for a long period of time.
This morning I had to mix the 2 ml of syrup with 5 sachets of Splenda sugar. The Splenda helps the syrup stick to my Esophagus and not go directly into my intestine. I then have to wait 30 minutes before I can eat or drink again.
I will be doing this morning and evening. Not sure what I am expecting from this, as I am usually unaware that my Esophagus is inflamed.
