hey everyone, i started taking mezavant (a 5-ASA drug) about last week, right now im only up to half the dose but even with this I dont have the usual pain in my abdomen which is wonderful to say the least. Except I think since Ive started taking it my D has actually gotten worse! Is this usual? Should the drugs reduce or eliminate it?
Also because Ive been going to the washroom about 20 times a day, I dont think my body is absorbing much nutrition from the food ive been eating. I was admitted overnight for observation yesterday because I was so weak and dizzy, my blood pressure although usually low was 82 / 48, which is dangerously low. Any tips on how to get more nutrition? And to help get some of my energy back, because right now I feel DRAINED!
