My mother has ulcerative colitis and was on colazal for a couple years. Her bowel movements got more and more explosive over time. Once she ran out of the med and because she used mail order, it took a week to get her refill. during that time she did much, much better without all the gas and explosive movements. She told her GI and he let her stop them. She is delighted that her UC appears to me in remission - formed stools, no blood, no pain. She is a very, very happy camper!
Hope the other GI you see understands that the melasamine meds can actually make some people worse!
