Hi there,
 
I'm new to the forums.  I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and I've had Crohn's (originally they thought I had UC, but diagnosed as Crohn's later on) for about 12 years now.  I've been on all the standard drugs (sulfa drugs, imuran, prednisone etc), all of which haven't been terribly effective.
 
The GI that I have started seeing recently is pushing for me to go on Remicade, which I'm not completely comfortable with.  Not only does it come with a whole list of scary side effects, but it's an immun-supressive drug, which I feel does me more harm than good.  Sure it may cover the symptoms, but it doesn't get to the root of the problem.
 
I've read a lot about LDN recently and am prepared to try it out.
 
I'll be meeting with my GP tomorrow to discuss this with him and try to make a case.  I'm fairly sure he won't prescribe it, so I was wondering:
 
Does anyone know of any doctors in Toronto (or in the GTA) that will prescribe LDN?
 
Thanks!
 
Dave

If yo check Yahoo discussion groups, and put in LDN, you will find the info. that you're looking for.
