it was ibuprofen that actually gave me uc in the first place.
i used it for a long time in my teens and early 20's. doc said take as much as you want for whatever it will be fine.
no side effects. i should sue!
my current doc and other gi docs said no way to NSAID's whatsoever with UC.
very bad indeed.
i cant take them, i will get a flare.
steph - 31 - female - diagnosed UC in 2000
started as proctitis, went to pancolitis..then went back to left side only to splenic flexure.
last 3 weeks have been fabulous with no UC symptoms at all = remission (yey!)
prednisone = finally finished!!! woohoo!
1000mg mesalazine 2x day -
1/2 1/4 oxycodone every 6 12 18 hours (weaning)
calicim, inner health plus (probiotic), fentalyn patch
for pain and to wean off oxycodone
VSL#3 didnt work - Aloe Elite didnt work - Budesonide didnt work
prednisone finally made me puff out on my last week of taking it ... bugger!
