I am starting on the nicotine patch today in hopes that this will help my UC.   This way I am saving my quit as we quit smoking 3/11/08.  I don't want to go back to smoking, but even though I didn't know it at the time, I actually started flaring mid May.  Understandably after all this time I am ready to do anything to get thru this flare.  I know that I am fortunate in that others have it much worse than I do.  Just tired of all the pain etc.  so I will push forward and try something else.

I was on the patch a long time. It may have helped a bit although I flared while on it. I t makes you feel yucky - headachey, tired, dizzy, etc. Makes you lose weight, though...
21 years of UC which started after quitting smoking. In and out of flares which are usually triggered by antibiotics. Latest issue is endless diarrhea without blood or mucous.
