-my mom has uc and is currently on remicade (3rd infusion will be in 2 weeks), prednisone (25 mg) and is tapering this down, 12 asacol a day, and also Canasa and also Bentyl(to reduce stomach cramping and spasms). As of recent, the problem has primarily been tooooooo many bm a day and the amount of abdominal pain and stomach cramping. It has been ridiculous. The last results from the blood test indicated great results. The rectal pain she used to experience has gone slightly down, however the consistent bm's is not letting it go away. DOes anyone have any advice as far as how to help lower the # of bm's or what the problem could be? SOmetimes I think that since the prednisone is going down, the remicade alone may not be doing it. Any other medication advice or personal advice or opinions. Everyone's help is certainly appreciated. Thank you so much.
