Sherry, I sympathize with you. I tolerate Colazal but not Asacol, and mesalamine enemas affect me just like the Asacol - cramping and terrible D. I've never been on 6-MP, but was on Imuran for a couple of years. It made me a little better (in combination with Colazal and Entocort,) but I was still going 5-10 times a day with cramping and blood.
Checking your levels on the med sounds like a good place to start. Your dosage seems lower than what most take, so perhaps an increase will help. And I'm totally with you on the steroids.
Hope you get this under control quickly so you can enjoy a beautiful spring.
