Well, I stopped both Rowasa and LIalda. I tried Rowasa every other day and the two Lialda every morning and kept feeling worse. Actually, the UC gets betteron 5-ASAs but I feel like I have the flu more each day. This morning woke up 3 a.m. - nearly threw up - stomach ache (not colon), ringing in my ears worse, headache, etc. Yesterday I ate very bland and lite so nothing to do with that.
I will call doctor tomorrow (as that is the day he is in my office) and tell him and NP to work on another plan. No real cramping going on - two BM's - one with tiny blood - so I am fine for a few days and then start over again I guess. At this point - rather have UC than the side effects (that is how sick I feel) Going to take a nap.
