Thanks for answering so quickly. Do you know if I should cut back on Asacol while taking the Sulfa? I'm currently taking 8 Asacol/day. I took the Sulfa last night and one Sulfa this morning and haven't taking any Asacol yet today. I understand your answers are your opinion, and I will take the advice of my doctor.

Thanks, Maggie

Don't cut back on anything.....take the Asacol...it's passage through the digestive tract is different than the Sulfa. Which one are you on?

You should consider taking a probiotic while on the antibiotic.

I'd be shocked if your doc suggested to discontinue the Asacol...

~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~vitamins/minerals/supplements 
~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 !!!

The Sulfa is "sulfameth/trimeoprim 800/160 tabs." I don't understand the dosage on this one. I take Culturelle daily, but I might double it while on the sulfa. Thanks a bunch
