HI
The mornings are the worst for me, I can be in the bathroom for over a hour going back and forth. I get to a point where the cramping is bad my legs hurt and then my butt feels inflammed. Why?? I have a script for Lonix generic for Lomotil, I've only taking 1/2 a pill, one time and it relaxed me so much I had to take a nap, but when I woke up i was fine for the day. I've tried metamucil and it seems to work off and on; it's a hit or miss with me.
 
I've had some great weeks with all the energy in the world, even making it to the gym at 7am then there's weeks when I wake up and use the bathroom I'm there for a hour or more and can't leave my house even if it was on fire! It's that feeling of having to go over and over. There's no blood, but it just feel inflammed b/c I go so much! Please any suggestions will help. Maybe I should take Lonix at night or something. I'm on sulfasalsazdine (4 a day) that was prescribe, maybe i should up it to 6? But would this help with diarreah? Its diarreah with yellow liquid, then a piece of mush. It's not all water. I'm glad not to see blood though. I take cansasa every few days, maybe this needs to be a every night thing. I'm pretty good during the day and feel fine, just a FYI, it's the morning that are a killer.
 
Thanks for all you suggestions.

Hello!  I know exactly how you feel with all the bathroom trips in the am and your rear end hurts so bad after.  Before I got pregnant I was taking 1 Lomotil every morning, I would wake up go to the bathroom so many times, eat get ready and about 30 minutes before I wanted to be at the gym which was about 8:45am I would take 1 tablet and thats it.  I never had problems with rebound effects the next day and once my body adjusted to it I didn't seem as tired and the BM's seemed less often.  The doctor did recommend me taking 1 before bed to see if it helps slow things down in the morning, but I always take metamucil every night so I thought both wouldn't be good at the same time.  For me Lomotil was the best thing the doctor gave me, I was able to do things with out worring about the bathroom, it just takes time for your body to adjust to it.

Mornings are rough on me too. I go about 1-5 times in the morning. When I only go once a day, it's still terrible because I hardly go at all and then I feel bloated all day. The yellow liquid can be from your Sulfasalazine. I know when I was on it years ago, it did that for me too. I agree that maybe you should up your Canasa to every night or every other night until you start to feel better. Can you tolerate Rowasa?

I remember when I was on rowasa it was ok and I was on asacol at the same time. When I got off, the flare came right back after my 6 weeks on meds and the doctor said you can get off, I tried colocort and I feel so sick. Are these different?

Some members on sulfasalazine have written in other threads that they have to take 8 tablets daily to keep from flaring. Also, you should use rectal meds in addition to help reduce your butt-inflammation as quickly as possible. When you can't get off the john in the AM, it means that your rectum (& possibly sigmoid colon, too) is super-inflamed. The only thing that can relieve it is anti-inflammatory med. Remember what Quincy tells you; it's the best advice! / Old Hat (nearly 30 yrs with left-sided UC ... [etc.])
P.S. Colocort is a steroid; Asacol/Rowasa are non-steroid.

Hi Quincy if your reading this, what rectal meds would you recommend? Canasa or Rowasa? Maybe the canasa isn't getting up far enough. I do well with whatever is in the sulfasalsazdine, so if it comes in a liquid form I'd ask for it.

The Canasa will only treat the rectal inflammation but if the inflammation is higher you are going to need an enema to reach that area. Rowasa is a good one for that, this is basically Asacol in liquid form. Old Hat is correct, Colocort and Cortifoam are steroid based while the other ones do not contain steroid and are liquid mesalamines.
