First off do you use Probiotics? If not, that really is something you need to add into your med regimen. Crohnies tend to have an overabudance of bad bacteria, and the probiotics add good bacteria back into your intestinal tract to even things out. Due to my resections I tend to have problems with bacterial overgrowth myself. Doc had me do a 10 day course of Cipro and change to a better probiotic and I am feeling much better. I take Primadolphilus Fortify and it has helped alot with my constipation too. I still use stool softners nightly, but now only have to take one instead of the two I was taking. Some of the other brands folks on this forum use are VSL#3, Align, Culterelle and Florastar. Hope that helps.
