When you have Crohn's disease, you have two main goals: Prevent flare-ups and keep them away for good. As a first step, your doctor may start you on drugs that curb inflammation. Although they aren't a cure, they can help you feel much better.
Inflammation in the intestines causes symptoms like stomach pain and diarrhea. Anti-inflammatory drugs ease those symptoms and may even keep them away for years.
Your doctor will help you decide which one is best for you based on your symptoms.
