Hi, currently my UC in being managed by Asacol x4 daily and Salofalk enema every other night. Everyday is a different day as far as symptoms. One day I bleed more than the last, yesterday I was doubled over with cramping, today I have pressure and urgency ect...
IThe only suppliment I am on is vitamin B12 1000mg a daily because when the colon is not working, our body has a hard time absorbing B12. I
Hi...two things....you should be on the rectal meds nightly if you're still bleeding. Can't remember..were you on them nightly recently and just started to taper?
1000mg would be a mega overdose amount...what is the actual amount you're taking?
You should get your b12 checked out by your doc ... if you need a higher dosage, maybe shots would be better.
Are you eating OK?
*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 !!!
