Yes. I have been using it for years, in conjunction with Pentasa. I have occasionally had to have prednisone to get a flare-up under control, too. My daughter uses only 6- MP, since having a bad reaction to Pentasa. We had pancreatitis when we took Asacol; this works better for us. Be aware of side effects though- do your research. Becoming a runner has helped me stay off prednisone, and avoid flare-ups. The endorphins heal the gut, my doctor said. Get exercise into your routine too! You might be able to use less drugs.
