I was using Rowasa and Colazal (1 x3) every day and feeling pretty good, etc.  Bleeding nearly stopped - no D.  Then I had that spell of going out to eat and got sick.  Now two days later - feeling dizzy a little.  I used canasa because my pharmacy had to order Rowasa refill.  I used it last night - nearly all of it.  Do you think that is causing dizziness and yucky feeling - including slight headache.  I took sinus medication (which I do often) thinking it is sinus problems BUT who knows.  I will trying 1/2 Rowasa tonight and the three pills tomorrow.  Then call the doc!
Thanks for listening!  Getting a little discouraged.  UC is much better and now SIDE EFFECTS - yuck!

Mesalamines are known to cause dizziness in some who are more sensitive to them. And what do you mean you used nearly all of your Canasa? Did you insert more then 3?

No - sometimes what I type is not what I mean LOL!

I used Canasa - one each night for three nights.  Then got the Rowasa and used nearly all of it (had not used the whole thing before).  So last night I only used 1/2 and taking two of the Colazal today - seeing if cutting back helps the dizzy.  Feeling better today.  Also took a Sudafed.

I will wait to call NP as I am ok - no emergency AND NO BLOOD for three days at least! That is thrilling to me.
