  • I had been given an antibiotic and an antiseptic mouth rinse. A thrush infection followed. I was treated for that but the coated tongue and cotton mouth persist.

  • From this study (4 days ago):

  • I wish to switch out budesonide, which is $1000 per month, to try boswellia serrata instead. I have had success in the past with boswellia for joint pain.

    I have rheumatoid arthritis and collagenous colitis.
