In late December 2009, I began taking 4.9mg of LDN, prescribed by my Florida GI who only has 2 other patients on it and doesn't have alot of information on LDN. Up until 1 1/2 weeks ago, I was feeling great! No cramps, no backache, more energy, gained some weight back, only one BM a day although it was always veering toward D. Now I have some cramping, 2-3 bouts of D a day, lower back pain, dry mouth, weight loss. I am beginning to get depressed that the LDN is not working and I am going into a flare. I don't know if I should stop the LDN or if this is just a bump in the road.
I can't find any information on how long LDN keeps working or if it just works for the short term. Does anyone know how I could find this information?
I take Lialda, Immodium, probiotics, botswellia, seda crohn, assorted vitamins and calcium.
MToronto2-thanks for the information on nightshades. I do eat potatoes and tomatoes occassionally. Foods I eat one time don't bother me, but they might bother me the next time. Does anyone have any suggestions for foods that help keep weight on. Nutritional drinks, even those that are lactose free cause more D and gas. I want to give LDN a good try ( I am starting month 4) but I'm beginning to suspect it is not working for me. Does anyone take Citrucel to help bulk up BMs. Sorry to be rambling, but I just want to feel better.
