I went into remission about
August last year. However it was a tough 9 months with lots of IBS and GERD issues. In March I went off Asacol and discovered that most of my GERD and stomach issues were caused by this drug. I then tripled my probiotc dose and that cured the IBS. Right now I'm feeling brilliant, 1 BM a day, no meds, just three daily doses of 4 different probiotic strains.
The headaches, lack of energy, lack of appetite, brain fog all disappeared since I started probiotics as well.
I'm going nowhere near an IBD maintenance drug unless I flare very very badly.
Big thanks to all who helped me get to this stage from this site.
