I've been taking it for 6 weeks now and no issues. It started working on the first day. I had a little nausea the first two-three weeks, and my stomach was sore; sort of like I had been doing sit ups all day. My stoma has grown, but not too big. 350 yearsof Crohns "fistulating" patient with no other health problems, but with Crohns, who needs anything else to go wrong. Good drug so far.
