From seeing the doctor on Weds, he said I really should be on meds (mild inflammation he saw instantly when he was looking up my rearend) and I've come to the conculsion that yes I need something to get me over the hump. I took one asacol this morning just to start and I will take one tonight and build up if I need to. I will start Canasa tonight as well. All these meds make me dizzy though, so the doctor said do less to start and work up from there.The Lialda was a huge pill and to think all the meds in that one pill freaks me out. How strong is it compared to one Asacol? But since I started Asacol I won't switch now.
Who likes asacol and who likes Lialda?
To vent, I'm not happy and it makes me cry to think I have to do meds. However, the constant battle of diet and supplements has taxed me, period. The vitamin E enemas does work, but you have to be 100% on the diet. I can't do the enemas this week b/c of the hemmroids rubberbanding my doctors said hold off until the hemmroids die off and the rubberbands come out. If I was at home all the time and not exposed to eating out at work or a lunch on the run I'd be better off. I do pack my lunch a lot, cooking it at night takes most of my time. Yes, it's worth my health. Just one slip up and you're screwed though. I'm trying trust me.
I will see how I do on the asacol. I started the Digest Advantage yesterday and I did need a probiotic in my supplement regimin anyways. They are half off right now at Rite-Aid. Really all I want is no urgency and to be able to pass gas without anything coming out with it. I miss those days.
Pray for me and I will pray for you. Thanks. Down in the dumps right now,
