When I first started out on Pentasa, I took about
22 pills a day. It was weird because prior to my diagnosis, I didn't take so much as a multi-vitamin. I had to buy a watch with multiple alarms and carry one of those pill separators to remember to take them all.
Four years later, I take close to 30 pills a day. I switched to the 500 mg Pentasa and take two twice a day, but I take a ton of herbs and supplements - which are working wonders. It is hard getting so many down and now that I'm feeling so well, it's even harder to remember. Maybe I need to bring my watch out agin.
It's a pain in the behind, but so worth it if I can keep feeling this good, the stomach pains and the arthritis stay away!
