Yes, I took 6MP for seven years for ulcerative proctitis. I had remission for two years and then started flaring yearly. In the past eighteen months, I have suffered three flares, all lasting a long time and had to go on prednisone for the upteenth time. Now prednisone dependent. Starting Remicade tomorrow morning...doc took me off the 6MP two weeks ago.
