 has anyone heard of the new ipill that philips research has developed, it electronically delivers the drug right to the site of the disease. This is really good for crohns, and a lot of other diseases. I don't know if its fda approved or in the works but it really sounds good to me. I am post op no. 3, 3 weeks tomorrow they took out 12 more inches of the intestine. none of the meds were working and I have been on predinsone to long ,so it was all in a localized area so we decied to take it out. All is going well so far , was out of the hospital in 3 days , and feeling better than I have in years. thanks for listening , and there is hope for us all. cmn

Someone else just posted about it on the UC board. I hadn't heard of it until today.
27 Year old married female law student (last year!!). Diagnosed w/ CD 4 years ago, IBS for over 10 years before that, which was probably the CD. I am sort of lactose intollerant too but can handle anything cultured and do well w/ lactose pills and lactaid. For crohns I am currently on Pentasa 4 pills/4x day and hysociamine prn. I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13. I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium. Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night.  I take xanax prn for situational anxiety (aka no easy bathroom access).

My friend saw it on Oprah a few months ago, but I really haven't done any research on it. 

Crohn's Disease, Acid Reflux/Gastritis, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, Endometriosis, Arthritis, Depression/Anxiety.  Too many meds to list them all.  =)
