My daughter 2.5 yrs has just switched from pentasa to sulfasalazine about 2 days ago. Just wondering how long it takes to start working. She has joint pain as well as crohn's disea se. I have a script for steroids too which I am suppose to use after 48 hours if she didn't come good. She is on flagyl as well and had a shocking few days and was about to fill the script but then today mid morning she came good. Legs are still a little sore, but I am hoping that the new drug has kicked in. Although maybe its the flagyl instead?

I think within a few weeks it should start kicking in. I think the Flagyl might be contributing to her feeling better. Good luck!

Thanks Gail, I was thinking maybe it might be the flagyl. Hopefully things are starting to get sorted.
