I think the Canasa isn't enough medicine nor does it go high enough to deal with the area that's inflamed.
I'm not clear on whether or not you were on cortifoam first then did the canasa...or were flaring and only tried the canasa.
Did you only use it once at night? You can use it up to 3 times daily.
I think you should give it a fair chance to see how it can work for you.
Can you not use the 5ASA enemas...and I've probably asked you that before, but can't remember.
*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... tapered to every second night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol (6 daily) + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 3(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed ....bromelain 1 - 2x daily
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg; Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
