Hi dellmsft..welcome to the forum!
I think there are lots of things that will affect us while we're flaring...consider that the colon is in a very fragile state and it takes a while to heal.
My initial thought based on experience is that you should have tapered the morning Rowasa and not stopped them completely.
You can taper them fairly quickly, however....
I would suggest you add a morning Rowasa every second morning or even every third morning and in between do the Canasa suppository.
Is your UC thoughout your colon or limited?
You've just had a bit of a setback....starting over regarding your meds should get you back on track.
Hope you feel better soon.
*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 !!!
