just curious... my doctor just prescribed pentasa for me and said it was one step up from mesalazine.
ive been researching it and it looks like it is the same thing.
whats the point of switching if its the same?
is it the same?
anyone have any info for me?
steph - 32 - female - gold coast australia - UC since 2000
severe UC in descending colon and sigmoid colon ONLY
mesalazine granules 3g x1 a day (much nicer than a million tablets a day)
prednisolone 25mg x1 a day (ick ick and did i say ick?)
enteric coated fish oil -omega 3 (so they get all the way to my colon)
vitamin D3 x1 a day
tumeric capsules - if i remember to take the bloody things.
i still eat what i want, when i want, if i feel like eating at all :(
