I've been using a mesalamine enema nightly with fairly good results. We had a long day yesterday and I fell asleep without using it. Today has been nothing but trouble. Lots of bathroom trips with gas and blood.

I'm taking 2 Lialda per day but did take 2 motrin yesterday. I wonder if this is the cause?

Does anyone see their symptoms return after skipping just one night?

Motrin, usually causes flare up like symptoms.  It should be avoided when you have UC.  You can take Tylenol (acetimenophin) sp?  Good luke!  I hope your "poopy" day was just a result of the Motrin!  Hope you are feeling better. :-)

It could be from the motrin. I get worse when I forget to use my canasa I have noticed. It's hard to remember when you are just tired and want to go to bed.

do not take NSAID's with UC.. (non sterioid anti inflammatory drugs) that includes motrin, advil, alleve, naprosen and others.

they actually make UC worse.
so that might be the culprit.
or maybe a combination of both

currently flaring again..  grrr! (triggered by stress - grrr)
mesalazine granules 3g x1 a day (much nicer than a million tablets a day)
enteric coated fish oil -omega 3 (so they get all the way to my colon)
vitamin D3 x1 a day
prednisolone 25mg x1 a day (ick ick and did i say ick?)
tumeric capsules x3 a day
