Hi....I don't think you're on quite enough oral 5ASA, but that can be increased if you need...1600 daily is a good start.
The predfoam will help with the rectal/sigmoid inflammation.
You should see improvement over the next 2 weeks...are you supposed to stay on the predfoam for the full 6 weeks or eventually go to once a day?
Hang tough...it'll take you a while to get symptoms controlled..
Please don't miss any of your oral meds...
Keep us posted as to how you're doing.

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
