Hi...interesting your doc is interested in the site (more should be)..in a good way interesting!
Please don't taper off or too soon regarding the supps...you're going too fast I think. Stay on the every second night for at least 2 or 3 weeks. Truly!! Then do the same for the every third night.
If all remains fine, then do every 4th night. I would suggest you STAY at every 4th night. But, if you don't, you'll know soon enough if you needed to and can increase at any time. It's a constant.. not black and white have to be on, have to be off. Some don't get that concept.
You can take the Asacol twice daily..
When will you find out the results of the upper ct scan. Good you're feeling better today.
*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 !!!
