Hi from North of Syracuse - about 20 miles!
Cortifoam and Proctofoam seem to be about same - has steroids in them - not same as Rowasa. I take the Procotfoam and like it because it is easy to use and has a "numbing" ingredient. (also used for Hemmroids) After about 6 days it does not seem to be doing a lot, however - still hoping.
I take 3 Colazal - 2 times a day also for about a month now.
Getting very discouraged about everything so far - want to feel better FAST!
Good luck! ElaineNY
