zero days. I am one of those people with a mild case but a case tha won't go away no matter what I take. Plus, my body couldn't handle Imuran. For one year I felt like I had taken a sleeping pill everytime I too Imuran and then my bloodwork showed I wasn't metabolizing it.
I'm glad to hear it's helping you!
Bad fissure Feb 2005. Started Remicade 2006. Fissure #1 healed, now deal with smaller fissure that comes and goes. Clean scope 2009 except for fissure. Also on Pentasa.

I'm like snappy, it did nothing for me. My doctor told me to keep taking it when I started LDN and I still decided to stop. I have felt much better on LDN and probiotics than I have on the other meds.
500 mg of Pentasa 4 times a day, 1 Florastor 2 times a day, 2 mg LDN at bed time, 1400 IU Vitamin D3

Prior medication until LDN:100 mg Imuran a day - GI wanted 150 mg, but I didn't want to destroy my liver, 1 Gram of Pentasa 4 times a day, 3 mg of Entocort 3 times a day, Librax as needed
