Hi and Welcome! Sorry you are having a tough time. I'll answer the questions I can....Yes it can be hard to get off prednisone. I became dependent and went on Imuran (obviously not an option for you). There is also 6mp which is similar to Imuran.
Has Remicade been suggested to you? Quincy will be on soon to tell you about
the different suppositories and enemas.
Fiber...fiber is definitely good to firm things up. I take a fiber supplement daily. Do you take any probiotics? Those put good bacteria in our guts.
Tylenol is a-ok for UC but make sure you avoid ibuprofen.
You were taking 8 Imodium a day?! How long were you doing that?
100mg Azathioprine, 2 Fibercon, Colazal-9 a day, Acidopholis Pearls, Nexiumhttp://www.healingwell.com/donateCo-Moderator UC Forum
