    Yes, but I don't really understand what you are looking for with this question. I have been on blood pressure meds since I was 23 years old and now I am 48. Is it because I have IBD? I doubt it. It has a lot to do with it, but isn't the only reason.

    Yes I take Perindopril for high blood,pressure and Azathioprine for crohns, have done for a few years. All other meds for crohns, and I mean all, have not worked for me.

      Hi Dulcie ,Do you think taking Perindopril just might had caused your Crohns  , or Azathioprine (never heard of that),Me i have just been taken off Fossinopril Bysalate (i think it is this Bysalate that is causing problems), thanks for replying Dulcie

      Isn't something I have ever come across, didn't cause mine as I was diagnosed 11 years ago, always thought Crohn's was activated by your immune system attacking the intestines, don't think anything gives you the disease. Lots of meds can give you stomach problems but rarely be the cause of a disease
