Hi, i am currently on remicade and immuran and doing really well.
However i just wondered how many people have taken caprylic acid and benefited from it?
I dont know if my UC would be affected by caprylic acid but i do know that i have a disclouring on my tongue and dont know if this could be related??
Also if you do take CA how much do you take? The tablets i have seen state one a day and are 350mg CA each tablet

Not sure if imuran can cause it also (wouldn't doubt it), but I know prednisone for me caused candida, which is the fungus on the tongue and in the mouth.  My doc just prescribed nystatin for it, simple liquid you swish and swallow.  Is the discoloring a whitish/yellow?

Hi there,

I have tried Caprylic Acid before and ended up with serious abdominal pain and bloody diarrhoea.

I think it say's on the bottle that Caprylic Acid is not suitable for people with Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

Hello there-

I have been taking Solgar CA for about 4 months now it is 365mg. I take two a day, once in the morning and another late afternoon and at night I take probiotics. I have had no problems with them what so ever and I think it has helped. It is hard to say I started it while in remission and and I'm still in remmision

I have tried CA and didn't see an improvement one way or another. I know others have taken it for their anti-fungal approach. I was taking three of those tablets twice a day and didn't feel any side-effects.(yes, that is really overdosing myself but my goal was to kill as much as fungus as I could) I started my anti-fungal approach with Olive Leaf Extract..if I recall, I was taking 1000mg four times a day. With OLE, my BMs were cut in half within few days. Hope that helps.
