I was diagnosed with UC about
7 years ago and was on Colozal (3 pills 3 times a day) until last year. I had a major flare last summer and was put on prednisone which helped and my doctor also put me on Entocort and increased my Colozal to 12 pills a day. I have been off the prednisone for about
4 months now. My husband and I are going to start trying to get pregnant next month and I know that Entocort is bad to be on when you are pregnant. I spoke with my doctor's nurse and she said that it was my choice if I wanted to go off the Entocort. I went off it almost a week ago and nothing has changed so I think I will be fine off of it.
My question is this-is the Colozal not working anymore for me? Once I went off the prednisone I was, and still am, going to the bathroom maybe 7 times a day with D and urgency. There isn't any blood so am I still in a flare? I really had never had a bad flare since I was diagnosed so I am unsure of what to expect time-wise for getting completely better. Any advice would be appreciated.
