As of September 2002, Dr. Bihari was following eight patients with Crohn's Disease on LDN. In all eight cases, within 14-21 days the signs and symptoms of disease activity stopped. All eight had remained stable since anywhere from 2 months to 36 months.

 

That came off the site above.

I have been on it for over 3 months now. It keeps my UC from getting any worse, but I am not getting any better. Its the only prescription I take, but be careful with mixing it with immune suppressors. LDN boost your immune system, so the imuran, 6-mp's, pred, etc cannot be taken with it. I have read where people do mix the two, but its not recommended.

I got a compounding pharmacy to mix it for me in 4.5mg capsules. If I remember correctly its really for crohns than UC.

Here is another site:
