As always I'm poking around for some advice.
After yet ANOTHER flare i've found some big improvements after pestering my consultant to let me try suppositories (can't keep the foam in for more than 30 secs) .
Pentasa 1mg nightly has helped me wave goodbye to most of my symptoms, which the pred can take a long time to heal.
After seeing the consultant today he tells me to stop using the suppositories, and only to use again when I flare!!
I'm not happy with this? Can the suppositories be used as a base med for prevention? Surely I'll flare again?
So.......... Should I stop / reduce frequency / continue as normal?
Any advice much welcomed
