Continue using the Rowasa, try it as I suggested by inserting and starting to squeeze just inside of the anus as you're pushing it in.
I looked up Bowel Soother...there are about
30 different ingredients...I think you might want to reconsider about
As well....Melatonin is contraindicated in autoimmune disease, exacerbating/triggering symptoms....
I see a few things you can do just in case you are allergic to something or it's exacerbating your symptoms. It might be just as easy as that.
Regarding he Rowasa....did I mention I was n nightly for about
4 months with stubborn rectal symptoms. It is what it is. Try not to have too high expectations or be in a hurry...the Rowasa has already improved your symptoms and will continue to do so. A firm stool going through an inflamed and fragile lower rectum can cause bleeding.
As well, a fissure can be easily
I think the Lialda should stay as it is....you don't have symptoms that would warrant a higher dosage.
My thoughts about
*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 !!!
