I'm going through the same thing, it's been 3 years. All the meds give me bloody diarreah, weakness, fatigue, cramps, dizzyness it's horrible. When I did take asacol and rowasa at the same time I was a zombie, I slept at work when the boss was away, however the ulcers cleared up. My doctor said you can get right off, so I stopped cold turkey. Instantly it's come back and that was 3 years ago! I don't know what to do now. I'm on a natural protocol and on my own my blood stopped for 3 weeks just last month and I think eating lots of m&m and cashews triggered something over 3 days and now I'm back to bleeding. Yesterday no blood, today bloody again and my hemi is so bad I can barely sit. I know how you feel truly, I do. It seems like most can handle the meds, I can't.
What is the difference between azulfidine and the mesmeline?
