cyn555 -- Yes this was the pattern for me too -- couldn't plan anything for the morning--- no appointments or trips out till pm ( or about 11 am )Then settled down until I had slight problems every evening after the evening meal.
Seems to be an individual routine. Now I am in remission that is the pattern with normal BM's too !!
Happy healing !

you're definitely flaring. should be on rectal meds...that will help.

you're also on a high dosage of oral could be part of the problem.

Did the doc start you on the 12 or did he/she increase to that dosage?

You could also try Metamucil Smooth (just started using it again) to help bulk up the stool. Flaring will still cause you urgency (again I stress the rectal meds), but the metamucil can help a lot. Remember to NOT get the kind that's sugar free.

*Heather* Status..Asacol 6 (3 twice daily); enemas every 4th night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 4(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + Primadophilus Reuteri Pearls occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux);  Effexor XR 75mg(depression);  Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS"  worth it !!!
