Hi..I would suggest to continue to use the enemas for at least another week rather than stop them....if it gets worse, then it's possibly the med. Don't assume....I'd say it's more the inflammation than the med.
You should call the doc for some dicyclomine...it's an antispasmodic and will help with the spasming/feeling like your butt is going to fall out.
You might do better with 5ASA suppositories added in the morning with the steroid enemas used at night. Oh, are using the enemas at night or during the day?
*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 !!!
