LOL OH...I regurgitate the same old unfortunately, but eventually it's found out they can work well for most
UCinNC...happy to hear you're feeling much better...Yes, I love to hear it!!!
BTC...the 5ASA has a foam formulation in the UK and Australia I believe...not in N. America. The steroid rectal enemas have a form formulation that could be worth trying. The Canasa can work quite well...but is a lower dosage and can be used up to 3 times a day, however.
Are you on oral meds as well?
Rectal meds...who would'a thunk?
*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... tapered to every 3rd 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 !!!
