I have been in kind of a mini-flair on and off for the last month, no D some abdominal pain, extra gas and a bit of blood on my stool but only stripped and only on the very last piece or two (the first part of the BM is perfect). Since I switched to Lialda about
a month ago I asked my doc if it's the Lialda and he up'd my dose to the max 4 pills 2xs per day and increased my rowasas to every night.
I asked him since I'm only getting blood at the tail end of a BM is that indicative of upper bleeding? He said it could still be rectal; but since I have no blood on the paper etc, leads me to believe it may be in fact upper bleeding and the timed release action of the Lialda is not working for me as well as the good ole Asacol. Anyone have any thoughts or experience with this?
