Hi Old Mike,
I'm usually on the UC forum too (I've "seen" you there) but my mom has Alzheimer's so I'm here also. Thanks for posting the link - I'm going to read it now.
Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2005 and rheumatoid arthritis in 1998. On Remicade since 2005 for both diseases. For UC tried sulfasalazine, Lialda, colazal and others which made me ill. Started 50 mg. Imuran July 2015. Use Bentyl, peppermint oil capsules and Gas-X which all help with various UC symptoms during a flare.
Caregiver for mother with Alzheimer's Disease.
