Immune suppression: 1. 5-asa medications (sulfasalazine, asacol, (mesalamine) pentasa) may take the edge of symptoms, they do not adequately treat crohn's disease. 2. Steroids work, but are only useful for short course because of side effects. 3. Azathioprine (imuran), 6-mp, Methotrexate are often effective, and reduce the need for steroids 4. Remicade, Humira are very effective at treating fistulas or severe crohn's.
