Do any of you all take both Pentasa and Asacol? I started taking Pentasa after a year of Asacol and my pain still being under my ribcage and across my stomach. I have been on the Pentasa for about a mo and a half and now the blood is back in my BM's. It is red, therefore I know it has to be toward the end of my bowel and now I am wondering if a combo of the 2 would work best.
I know I may be jumping a head of myself, however when I saw the blood this morning I was worried because I had only had 1 "D" day since I started on the immunsuppressent, endocort and pentasa. As of last Thurs, last Sat was the only day I wasn't crampy and "D" (or very soft BM's).
Oh and my bloodwork from last mo showed my iron up to 11 and my CBC at 12.5.
