Re: I need info on pentasa for crohns
I use Asacol which is a mesalamine 5ASA medication for Ulcerative Colitis (and Crohn's). I also use Salofalk retention enemas....both ends approach for over 22 years. I'll keep taking it forever if I need to.
I've never used Pentasa, but if Asacol didn't continue to work, I'd consider it.
What's the dosage (how many per day) are you using?
Where exactly is your CD?
You should, however, have blood testing for liver and kidney enzymes about every 6 months.
The whole list of side effects would be listed in a pharmaceutical book or site.
It's all a matter of perspective!
