Got it now! Sorry my brain isn't fully functioning this morning even though I've been up for hours!
When I taper pred. I usually have a surge of symptoms for 1-3 days as my body adjusts to the new dosage. That would be part of the problem.
As for the sulfa...I didn't have a 'typical' allergic reaction either. No hives but I ended up in bed w/ a migraine for 3 days. If you have only taken 2 doses stopping the sulfa cold turkey shouldn't be a problem. Can you try Colazal or is that too close to the Asacol that you are allergic too? How about
100mg Azathioprine, 2 Fibercon, Colazal-9 a day, Acidopholis Pearls, Nexiumhttp://www.healingwell.com/donateCo-Moderator UC Forum
