I'm only on pentasa also. I started on prednisone, and pentasa. Weaned of pred and 6-mp was added. Ended up with a really bad reaction to 6-mp so I no longer can take it. But since I have mild crohn's and all of the diseased part of my colon was removed, my doctor decided to just have me on pentasa until I develop other symptoms. Been almost a year and so far so good.
