Well, rectal meds such as enemas...can you maybe to them if you put your butt n the air to insert them? Just a thought since that's one of the insertion methods stated on the instructions.
You should also be on Asacol or a 5ASA oral med...Asacol is the first choice, however.
I use Bentylol (dicyclomine...Bentyl in the US) which is an antispasmodic and find it does help with the rectal discomfort...but it won't improve your UC situation or the inflammation.
You could consider a fibre supplement and a probiotic..higher dosages.
all I can think of at this time.
Let us know how the appt goes.
*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 !!!
