    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.
