My husband has crohn s disease of 35 years duration and had surgery at age 32 and has been in remission since with taking Delzicol DR 400mg. tid . However as of 1/1 18 his insurance is no longer going to have this on their formulary. Do you know of any similar drug as he has done well with this.

Yes, I couldn t get my delzicol down one day this week and they fell on some dirty dishes, so I didn t take them that day. I haven t taken them for 4 days and everything seems to be okay. I am probably in remission because I have taken delzicol for 3 years. What do you think of abruptly stopping delzicol?

I have Ulcerative Colitis since 1999. I am on Delzicol for life probably and now taking Prednisone for a flare and it seems to be getting better. My question, is it safe to take herbal meds such as Boswellia with (which I have read is excellent in treatment of UC) and also is it safe to take the herb med Olive Leaf with Delzicol and Prednisone? Also, is there a relatively safe adult beverage that is the least invasive with UC. Have several big social functions coming up and would love to be able to have some wine or if there is something least difficult on the gut? If not, I ll continue as I am now. Tee-totaler : ) Thank you so much!!
