OMG Heathd, that's terrible having to take so much meds and you're not doing better. It took me a month to get the bleeding to stop, yours will too. I really like the sulfasaladine compared to asacol and colozal, it's worked the best for me. Have you tried doing a low carb, no sugar eating habit until your gut cools down? It's worth a shot. I'm 3 days no sugar. I eat a apple instead if I'm craving something. It has helped, my passing of stool is not as painful. I'm still going a lot the last couple of days I think b/c of cabbage. Were all helping each other here. I've learned alot from these posts. Also, how bad was your colits and where? I'm taking 4 a day now and they want to boost to 6, but you're on 12 I didn't know you could take that many. Good to know these things.
