Comment:
Was on this to treat U/C for 3 1/2 years along with Pentasa (and Prednisone as required) still had flare u'ps and was pretty much always taking the Pred anyway. Eventually it suppressed my bone marrow and my WBC and RBC crashed making me real crook. I never felt good on this and in the end the cure seemed worse than the curse. Still waiting to see if my bone marrow recovers. Also couldn ... Show Full Comment
