    I took it 3 capsules in the morning for joint pain and small flare up. I only have mild to moderate Crohns.

    Take this medication in the AM as it will give you insomnia if taken later in the PM. My experience has been good however it is driving my BP high and anxiety crazy. Other than these issues, it has worked for the Crohns. Taking 3x3mg a day/dose. Tried Pantasa at 2000mg a dose which almost knocked me out.

    I've been on this for two months and I feel fine but I never had extreme pain to begin with. My skin has had reactions to it and my stomach kept weight on when I never had issues before. Not the most ideal in my mind.

    I have taken this drug since the early 80's and love it. The Crohn's is flared again but unfortunately becasue of the cost$540.00 for 3 weeks I can;t afford it. Good luck to all who take this. It really is a wonderful nedication.

    I've been on this drug since July. The most noticeable side effect is the loss of hair. Minoxidil, which I have used for years, isn't helping.
