I am flaring, my meds are Colazal, Canasa, and just added Entocort yesterday. 
I literally slept ALL day today.  I woke up several times to go to the restroom, and a few times for a drink of water or some yogurt, tried to read for a few minutes, then boom - lights out.  I couldn't stay awake.  I have been up since 7 PM, now it's almost midnight.  I feel tired and I'm heading to bed again.
Is this the disease, the meds, or what??  I feel pretty crummy, but I don't think I have a fever.  Should I be doing something different?

It's hard to say if the meds are doing it, I would diff get blood work done if it wasn't yet.
It could be iron is low, potassium is low, who knows.  Always best to get it looked it.

Drink lots of water, and eat light if your getting the D (Toast, Bananas, Apple Sauce, Plain Rice, liquids)
If it's really that bad take some imodium as it will ease the D if your getting that, if it last more than 3 days ask a doc if its ok to take it.

Best of luck! :)
