You may have remembered me posting re thoughts  whether son should come off the pentasa whilst on the Azathioprine(consultant didn't think he needed pentasa too) but left decision to us. Son decided he would try being off of it again. Approx 5 days later trouble reared it's ugly head  and has continued all week. He has just weighed himself and has lost 7lb of the much needed weight that took him oh so long to gain :( Back on the Pentasa for him!
Thoughts things were going pretty good for a while, I guess I have to lol at that.

Unfortunaely sometimes these are things we need to try. It's tough when they work to our disadvantage. Now you know, so best of luck getting the weight back!

vixen:  life is like one big experiment, don't ya think?  Study sample of one though, and sometimes the study sample (me) has to repeat the experience cause I did't learn it well enough the first time!  Ah well, its what life is all about!  Hope your son feels better quickly!
