So I am newly diagnosed and have been taking Pentasa for a couple of days and I noticed white specks disbursed throughout my stool. I've read that it's normal for this to happen with Pentasa, but I'm concerned that this could mean that I'm not absorbing the meds properly and that they won't be doing anything. I know it's too early to notice any kind of significant relief but if I'm having problems absorbing the drug what's the use in taking it? My Crohn's is limited to my small intestine only (jejunum and ileum) so other suspensions would be considered inappropriate as they're meant for the colon. If I am having an absorption problem is there a better treatment option I could utilize?
