Christina: Sometimes when our lives get a little crazy, especially if we are feeling relatively well, it is easy to fall into a pattern of non-compliance with our meds. I think you need to find a way to ensure that you take all your prescribed meds as ordered. give yourself a couple of weeks to get back into a routine, maybe pull back a bit with your diet and I'm sure you will be able to soon get back to your normal. Until you have given yourself a chance to bounce back I wouldn't worry too much.
I've been on vacation for the last three weeks, visiting grandchildren. Such wonderful fun. But so disruptive to my regimen of pills, powders and drinks. I too found the three-times daily dosing for Pentasa a challenge (sometimes I think it would be easier to take this four times a day -- at meals and bedtime), and, like you, often missed the middle dose.
In the middle of all this, developed an ear infection and needed antibiotics. Now I am home and can't seem to get things back under control, so I am pumping up the probiotics, making sure i get my medication back in line, cutting back on the diversity of foods i had been enjoying and hoping this settles soon. Oh, and I have been sleeping and sleeping and sleeping because that's what my body seems to be telling me it needs.
So in the midst of all your busyness, hope you can still take the time to feel the kiss of the sun on your face everyday.
