Crohns, no treatment and drugs

I have crohns and are yet to have any treatment( changing soon) I often take drugs like marijuana and mdma however are unsure if they are safe with crohns( by safe I mean if they effect my condition, I am willing to risk the actual dangers of the drug, this is more directed to crohns) I am willing/planning on experimenting further with my drug use however will this have to change when Iím in medication, I will talk to my doctor but Iím sure they would just tell me to stay away.
What drugs are safe/less offensive to my condition?
Thanks in advance

Going to overlook marijuana here for the obvious. If you are playing with MDMA you need to do some serious research. Stop the MDMA and any other non-prescribed drugs or all of the beneficial ones that could help you probably will never have the chance to work.

I have only done mdma four times however this Thursday I plan on doing over half a gram of fairly pure stuff, is it too late to turn back? Should I seriously just not?

Just not.

Best response here. If you have crohn's you need to be able to read what your body is doing and you need to be able to convey that to a doctor. Anything that impairs that in an emergency has the chance of lifelong impacts for you.

Aside from that, pull up Wikipedia and look at the list of side effects. When you have a disease that can cause loss of appetite, dehydration, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and you are inducing these through a drug, you stand a very good chance of being turned away from an emergency situation. You would also stand a very good chance of being refused pain meds.

I can't speak to the particular culture where MDMA is used. I don't know how addictive it is. While I can understand the desire to be a little more "free," my preference has always been to make sure that it is really me and really those people around that are enjoying the time together.

Whatever your choice, I do hope your crohn's is not much of an impairment.

No, no stay well clear of MDMA or any of these quasi pharmaceuticals for the reason that they will not only exasperate medical problems but they will destroy your body.

Cannabis can be beneficial and can be had legally for medical purposes in this country, and a glass of scotch or wine can offer some help if its use is moderate. Look towards music on a good stereo, and meditation. Sometimes just a long walk in the woods will do. Find and discover your inner self, and come to terms with your condition, sometimes this can take some time, but the outcome is usually very positive.
We only get one body to use as our vehicle through life, take good care of it,and it will take care of you. We cannot trade it in for a new one, if only we could.
