Pentasa is the only medication I am currently on. I was diagnosed in January and was on pentasa as well as prednisone to stop my flare. I have been off of prednisone for 3 months and am doing fine. I don't have any side effects, but I know some people feel that it does not help them or some people's symptoms get worse. I do have some gas and gas pain, but other than that I am fine. This disease is so individual, as are the medications that will help each person. Are you taking pentasa now?
Good luck to you!
Diagnosed with crohn's in January 2008!
Pentasa 1000 mg 4 times a day
On Topamax twice daily for migraines (went off this in May to clear my system in order to get pregnant...only have had 1 headache since then...woohoo!!)
No longer on Nexium
I am 27 years old and have been married for 2 1/2 years. I cannot wait to try to have children so I want to get this under control!!
