Last November: 200mg Imuran, 6mg Entocort, 9-Imodium tablets and 6-8 BMs per day. Today: NO Imuran, NO Entocort, NO Imodium, 4 1/2mg Naltrexone and 3-4 BMs per day. Weight gain of 8 lbs with no change in intake or exercise. I presume this is due to better absorption. Folks, this is the genuine article. Dave D
I am wondering how you tapered off of the Imuran. I am currently trying to get a prescription for the LDN . I have Crohn's also and I am on 175 mg of Imuran. Do you begin the taper before you start taking the LDN or after you start it. Is it something a doctor would tell you, or do you have to take matters into your own hands. Im glad that the LDN worked for you! I hope this treatment will also work for me. Would be nice to feel "normal" again.
OK, I emailed her and got a response ( although it wasnt really the one i was looking for). She didnt give me the taper on the Imuran, but she said that they were still taking patients in for the Crohn's trial. I don't think that I would be able to be in the trial , since I live in Minnesota and it is taking place at Penn State. I cant afford to be off of work that long and travelling is a nightmare. I asked her again in my reply what the taper for Imuran is . I am currently on 175mg. Hopefully I get something back this time.
