Can I ask what mp stands for? I should probably know, but I have been lucky to survive on pentasa and I just started on prednisone.
Been on 6MP since November...I am feeling 100% better but dont know if its the 6mp kicking in as it has only been two months or if I am just finally going into remission. I did have nausea a bit at first but that wore off after about three weeks, and not sure if it was the 6 mp or the pred which I am tapering off of. Now on 5 mg every other day.
I have heard really great things about 6 mp. I was very scared to take it. But as my Doc explained that the fears that have concerned the medical world over using 6mp for crohns and colitis have been unofounded over the long term use of the drug and patients. And whats most reasurring is that any side affects that take place are reversed by merly stopping the drug.
I havent been sick or anything or had any colds since starting and I have been around my 3 yo who has a cold every week and my partner who just got over the flu. As well as friends and coworkers who have all been down this season...I seem to be going up!
