Hi..welcome to the forum!!
Are you using the enemas nightly or during the day?
I don't usually have bms at night, but if I'm feeling the urge, I'll wait.
Where are you having dermatitis??
The 5ASA meds...oral and rectal should be used together to be totally effective.
You're on the right track.
How long were you on the nightly/daily enemas before tapering down?
what other symptoms are you having at this time?
*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 !!!
