Hi..what other meds are you on? How far up is your UC?
I've used Salofalk with much success for 19+ years....but I did use Cortifoam (or proctofoam..can't remember) for 2 weeks and it worked well.
How long have you been on the Salofalk?
Starving yourself won't help the bleeding or the inflammation....eat regularly and if you must, change the meds.
Some cannot use any of the 5ASA meds at all.
Welcome to the forum,
