I have been trying to understand why my symptoms of UC are back. Anyway, I see you tried Asacol and Rowasa and now taking Colazal. You know I took Canasa, Protofoam and then started Colazal. Because 6 Colazal and the protofoam were not finsihing the job - doctor put me on Rowasa nightly and 9 Colazal. Then the side effects kicked in - so I backed off to 2 Colazal a day (assuming that was where I was getting the side effects). Then I stopped both because I got so sick. I was only using about
1/2 Rowasa a night. So, when I went to NP she said apparently I could not tolerate the Colazal (even though I took them quite a while) so suggested (after nearly 3 weeks of no medication and tiny symptoms of UC)
to use the Rowasa every other night hoping to remain in partial remission anyway - until she talked to doctor and calling me tomorrow. So - bottom line - I used Rowasa Friday night and been sick since - today symptoms of UC are back at least about 1/2 - blood, D, cramping, etc.
Do you believe it is the enemas and not the pills. I assume I will have to try pills and no enema to find out, huh?
Thanks! You guys here are super. I am just too old for all this!! HA HA
