sodbuster19...What rectal meds are you using?
It'll take time for the flare to heal since you're going so often...try to stay on them until you're "normal"...then start to taper. The tapering process is what makes a difference so that you get to a maintenance level.
We all at times don't take our meds....but hopefully you'll see the validity in being faithful to taking them.
Why are you on the dosage of Colazal of 4 daily....did you taper to that dosage or did the doc suggest for you to use only that amount. Not to say it's not a high enough dosage...but you might need to up if your symptoms get worse while on the rectal meds.
*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 !!!
