Hi All, I have a script written up for the LDN, my doc said it will make me feel great and he said just like the UC meds, it doesn't "cure" but it will help emensly to heal the colon so that maybe I can get into remission. I need to see a allergist and get 3 tests done for yeast and food allergies. I like the path this guy is taking. I'm starting at the lowest dosage 1.5 millagram working my way up to 4.5mg which is the recommended dose. Also the side effects were, no drinkng alcohol I will get sick, losing the sense of being hungry, and having dreams when sleeping and maybe a disturbance when the endorphines start working. I'm very excited about all this b/c the 5ASA make me very sick. I will let you know how it goes.
Thank You,
Linda

Thats great I'm so happy for you and I'll be really interested to know how you get along,I also have what my doc
calls severe left-sided colitis,I too could not get along with the5 asas,and hae now been on imuran azathrioprine for about a year,its just about making it liavable with but not remission,I still get a lot of pain,bad gas,no where near normal bms.When I first read about LDN I really wanted to try it,because I can't get out of my head the idea that there is something intrinsically wrong with giving someone immune supressants.espically when you are already sick and weak.I did read on this site that you could not try LDN if you were on aza,but I sure would like to anyway best of luck keep posting to tell us how you get on at least with LDN the worst that can happen is your immune system will get a boost

I started my LDN last night and I'm very excited. I'm just glad I was able to take it and not be paranoid of side effects, this is a big step for me. I know live alone since my divorce was final 2 weeks ago and now I'm back to being idependent and having confidence in myself that everything will be ok. I will be on 1.5mg then from there 3.0mg for the next month until I reach 4.5mg. I will continue to post.
