::popping in from UC::
I guess you have to decide how much of the colon you want to treat. If you're just worried about the rectum, then suppositories would make more sense. If you want to treat the distal colon, then go for enemas. I have pancolitis, and I plan on staying on both oral and rectal meds for maintenance, using mesalamine enemas 2x/week. Studies show that people with UC who use enemas twice weekly + oral meds stay in remission for longer than those who only use oral meds.
