I have a friend who was first diagnosed with UC then switched to Crohn's. She feels that if her stomach is bothering her (say due to drinking or eating something she shouldn't), she takes extra Colazol or Imuran and suddenly feels better. I am not personally on Colazol but it was my understanding that none of my meds are fast acting, they're all maintenance meds for the most part (besides Lomotil) that took weeks to months to kick in. Do you think this in her head or does taking extra pills actually help her? She drives me nuts sometimes so this is more for argumentative purposes
(I realizes it sounds like she's overdosing, I don't think that's the case, I think she generally only takes two of her pill sets per day when she's supposed to take three; then when something bothers her she takes the other set)
As always, I hope you're all doing well!
