Are you really sure its not working??? I take the sister med Asacol and it works great for me, and I do not have CD in the colon. And I respectfully disagree with Harry here, because these drugs do work for many. I stopped taking my Asacol at one time and immediately started flaring. Went right back on it and got better in no time. My Crohns is maintained solely with the Asacol and I am currently in remission. Oh and my hair does shed alot, not sure if its the disease or the med, but you could try adding Folic Acid into the mix, that helps the hairloss. Good luck!
