YUp talked to my pedia GI, she's not that familiar with the enema's and promised me that she will be doing research about
it. Im from the philippines by the way IBD is not common here and not all medicines are available. Have not yet used suppositories, the only available suppositories is pentasa 1 g. Can i use this for a child below 5yrs old she's on 1 gram of oral pentasa/day and 7.5mg of pred. She can't get off pred, everytime i wean her symptoms appears, so im planning to use rectal meds. Im just gathering info so that i can present it to my pedia gi and hopefully we can get her off the pred. I've noticed with every BM when im weaning her from pred that the first thing to come out is mucus with streaks of blood and then the stool. So my analyis is that the inflammation is near the rectum. My Q is can i use the suppositories first just to test if it will help and my only concern is the overdosing and sideeffects?
