I currently take 6 per day and that has kept me in remission for the past 5 years, but I know I could take more if I needed it. Tigerpawn do you not trust your doctor's judgement? If you are not comfortable with your doctor maybe you should seek a second opinion. So far it sounds like he is trying to treat your Crohns. Good luck!
