Hi all - haven't introduced myself. I've been so upset about the flare after being in remission for 9 yrs. and it was so sudden. I have theories but my doc says it is definitely active UC. left sided. The bleeding started after being on some codine cough meds that constipated me for a couple days. Just thought it was a hemorroid but here I am. I'm on Asacol 3 - 3x day and just added 20mg. Prednisone. I also take several natural things: Omega 3/6, garlic, probiotics, whole food multi, B6, L-Glutamine, Metamucil and zyflamend. Anyway, my question is yucky but this group doesn't seem to mind. Could you tell me what others use in case of an "accident" when you're out - liners, pads?? Thanks.
