Sorry to hear that the LDN wasn't the miracle drug that it claims to be for you. I agree with glamourgirl though...better to have tried and then ruled it out. You never know when something will help your case of UC, even if others claim it is wonderful.
I haven't been on the board much lately, mainly because the LDN is working for me. Since starting it I've seen reduction in number of bms, no ribbon stools, and have been feeling better in general. I'm still taking Lialda along with the LDN plus all the supplements my naturopath doc started me on. So who knows if it is the LDN or all the other stuff I'm taking now. Regardless, I'm feeling like a normal person again, and if I could get rid of my constant exhaustion (which I've had since being dxed with UC a couple of years ago) I'd be 100%.
I hope you find something that helps you reach remission. This disease really wears a person a down.
