Treatments for gastroduodenal Crohn's
My 11 year old just got diagnosed with gastroduodenal Crohn's. He's started Pentasa. I understand that Pentasa has a PH sensitive coating and is designed to be released in the small bowel. That's fine with what's going on in his small bowel, but to me, that won't help with what he has going on in his stomach. Since mesalamine works topically, has anyone ever heard of someone breaking open some of the capsules and taking them with yogurt? If I can get this medicine into his stomach, maybe this will help. Any other ideas? I've also read a clinical trial that shows mesalamine along with sachromyces boulardii works better than mesalamine alone. Any one heard or read this? Thanks in advance for your help.
