I've been on 6MP about six years now. No, it has not kept me in remission. However, I have had UC going on eleven years and my UC is still located in the rectum and hasn't traveled further into the colon. Maybe the 6MP prevents this? Who knows? I also am on Colazal, nine pills daily. Presently I am in a flare and trying to stay off the prednisone. So, taking Cort enemas..a.m and p.m. I wasn't bleeding until the doctor stuck that sigmoidoscope up my tush yesterday and upset the apple cart...now bleeding
