Definitely rectal meds...which really should have been considered at least 3 weeks ago. But.it's a learning process to recognise symptoms earlier and earlier with each flare (unfortunately it's the best teacher).
By tapering them, you will find a maintenance dosage of which you should remain.....until you get familiar symptoms and up them again.
So....have you ever been on rectal meds? If so, which ones?
hope you can get things back on track.....it can take a while, however.
*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... tapered to every 4th 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 ....zymactive 3 - 5x 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 !!!
