Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength
Diagnosed with severe Crohn's colitis in May 2005. I deal with daily arthritis ALL over my body, cystic acne, & fibromyaglia. Have taken Imuran, Remicade, TPN, Colozal, Entocort, Flagyl, PamineForte, Cipro, Dicyclomine, Prednisone, Asacol, Prevacid, and the list goes on. Taking low amounts of Pred now & 3600mg of Asacol currently...Can't wait till I can get back on Remicade, my miracle drug!
Pentasa releases throughout the small intestine AND the colon. Lialda and Asacol release at the end of the small intestine and the colon. So any of these are suitable for Crohn's in the colon.
As for them some of them being Ulcerative Colitis meds and not Crohn's meds, they're all used for both. But they're considered mild drugs for Crohn's.
