Anon - Since Crohn's Disease is a chronic disease you will be under treatment for the rest of your life. You'll find information on the medications commonly used to treat Crohn's on our reference page: https://www.empowher.com/media/reference/crohns-disease#treatment

A great resource for learning more about how to live with Crohn's is the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America: http://www.ccfa.org/living/?LMI=1

This disease brings many challenges, and we wish you the best in managing them.
Take care, Pat
