I have only been on it for over 2 weeks.

I don't know what else to do I'm just seeing him next week and he says to try a specialist downtown

Should I jump this GI?
34 just diagnosed with UC
 
on Colazol 9 pills a day
 
4 times a day Predocine

Hi feelfine,
I would recommend you moving to the specialist. Its very important that you have a GI that specialises in this condition and understands the potential treatments available to you. The treatment that works for one will not necessarily work for another for example immunosuppresents make me come out in rash. A specialist will be quick to identify what is correct treatment for you.
At the very least, speak to the specialist downtown and see how comfortable you feel about discussing your condition and fears.
If you have someone who can attend the session then take them with you. I took a friend with me once because i changed my GI and I was very nervous about dumping the old one.
When I first found out about my condition i was quite distressed and could not think straight, my friends and family helped me to take charge. Discovery of this forum was also a great contributor to me taking control of my illness.

Call the specialist now even if the office is closed.
Leave him a message and tell you you are in a massive flare
and he should see you ASAP. Then call back first thing in the morning.
In the past 17 years I have found many Doc I flat out did not like so do not hesitate to switch.
Diagnosed panColitis 1990.
Current Meds Asacol x4
twice a day.
Pred for flares.
I still have my colon THANK YOU GOD!!!
