Hi,
 
I'm based in Vietnam. I have left-sided UC.
 
The best I can do for medication is generic asacol(like you Yujin). I wish I could get a supply of rectal mesalamine (enemas or supposotories).
 
Shipping here is not really an option, I very much doubt it would arrive.
 
Are such medications available in other regional centres? I could travel to pick up a supply.
 
Failing that steroid enemas would be good. Do you know the product name of steroid enemas/supposotories available in this region. I've looked but I haven't found any.
 
Thanks for reading - Hans

Singapore is also very well known for having top notch medical care in Asia. My husband lived there for 7 years and attended the American school. If you hit a road block and traveling is an option then you might want to check out Singapore.
26 Year old married female law student (last year!!). Diagnosed w/ CD 4 years ago, IBS for over 10 years before that, which was probably the CD. I am sort of lactose intollerant too but can handle anything cultured and do well w/ lactose pills and lactaid. For crohns I am currently on Pentasa 4 pills/4x day and hysociamine prn. I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13. I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium. Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night. I also take a birth control pill to allow some fun in my life.
