no, never had the experience with having suppositories compounded but lotions and some cough syrups are sometimes compounded. I did have some of those throughout the years done...
Interesting the doc didn't just prescribe you the Canasa or have them compound the suppositories in 1000 mg dosages.
I don't know if the generic mesalamine supps come in 1000mg.
You should taper the morning suppositories firstly and then the nightly ones to about twice a week. You'll need more refills...
Keep us posted as to how you're doing.
