    Have been on 150mg a day for almost two years. Taking with sulfasalazine and have not had any flare-ups with my ulcerative colitus. I am concerned about whether I should have a shingles shot. Have had flu shots with no problem.

    150mg/day for Chron's disease. First couple of months, had nausea and symptoms of Chron's hadn't lessened. Two years in, almost all symptoms are in remission. Used in combination with Colazal.

    This drug has brought me out of an 18 month cycle of steroids into remission now for 6 months. The first four months on this drug were really difficult as they caused nausea constantly. Blood tests have been fine with therapeutic range in white cells.
