Find a new doc! Fast! Pentasa is NOT the only medication to treat Crohn's. It's the most basic, and many doctors (mine included) feel that it's not particularly effective. You deserve to have your concerns heard. If your doctor is dismissing you, no matter how good s/he supposedly is, they aren't the doctor for you. Get a copy of your records and a second opinion.
Depression is very common with IBD and other chronic conditions. We feel like crap, and that wears you down eventually. Especially when the treatments aren't working and it seems like there's no light at the end of the tunnel. Talk to your family doctor or check the Psychology Today website. There are therapists who specialize in helping people deal with chronic conditions. Don't let this go. I know it's overwhelming, but you can this DD under control with the right support.
