I have been flaring for 6 months. I've been on Imuran for about
a year and a half and it's not doing much. I just got off prednisone and was doing great for a week. I'm not bleeding very much and I go 3-5 times in the morning and then nothing for most the rest of the day (I still feel like I have to go though). I can't go anywhere because once I hop in the car I have huge urgency issues even though I don't really have to go. All I can think about
in the car is where the next restroom is and how bad I have to go. Is any one on anxiety meds for UC and does it help? I have an appointment with my GI to talk to him because I need to be able to drive back to school in Jan.
Also, before trying Imuran the only med. I tried was Asacol. We discovered that I was better when I was off it so the GI decided that I couldn't handle any medicines like it. He acts like my only option left is Remicade, but I don't think I'm ready for that. Is it possible that Asacol didn't work for me but some of the meds. like it could?
