I have been on this Colazal for only 9 days and I have been feeling terrible as well as bleeding alot more. More mucus and all the other fun stuff and abdominal pain as well. I suppose it doesn't agree with me.(duh).
I see the other doc in the office on Wednesday(mine is again convieniently out of town for 5 weeks). I don't mind because I am not overly fond of my GI and this other guy is at least human. It has been a difficult few weeks lately. I am lucky I have my husband support but no one else gets it(except all of you)
Thanks for letting me whine again.

My mother has ulcerative colitis and was on colazal for a couple years. Her bowel movements got more and more explosive over time. Once she ran out of the med and because she used mail order, it took a week to get her refill. during that time she did much, much better without all the gas and explosive movements. She told her GI and he let her stop them. She is delighted that her UC appears to me in remission - formed stools, no blood, no pain. She is a very, very happy camper!

Hope the other GI you see understands that the melasamine meds can actually make some people worse!
