Try to tell my gastro doc that. He believe I should take the medications, suffer the side effects and go into remission. I took Colazal and Rowasa as long as I could stand it but felt like I had the flu and could not leave the house and it just kept getting worse - so I quit the medication. There is fine line sometimes and I know when it is crossed!
Think I finally convinced my NP that small doses I could handle would take longer but that is what I am trying now. UC is getting better but whether I can go into complete remission is doubtful (according to doc). Going to gry it anyway.
