If you've got Crohn's colitis, sulfasalazine might be worth a punt. It's an old med which appears to be slightly more effective in treating Crohn's colitis than the newer mesalazines. The downside is it's more likely to cause side-effects because of the sulfa component.
If I had mild Crohn's colitis and I could tolerate it (I know from past experience that I can't!), that's what I would be looking into taking. Also look into generic 6MP/azathioprine. (I have a feeling that azathioprine is cheaper than 6MP and it has about
the same effectiveness.)
Dx Crohn's in June 2000. (Yay )
Tried: 5-ASAs, azathioprine, 6MP, Remicade, methotrexate, Humira, diets.
1st surgery 20/2/13 - subtotal colectomy with end ileostomy.
2nd surgery 10/7/15 - ileorectal anastomosis. Stoma reversed and ileum connected to the rectum.
Current status: Chronic flare. Do I have any other kind?
Current meds: 50mg 6MP; Entyvio (started 3/11/16)
