Hi..welcome to the forum!
3 hours to retain the Rowasa is awesome...especially during the day.
You'll have probably more success with the night dosage. As long as it's in for enough time to have the med to some of its thing...that's good.
Since you can retain it when you're active, seems it probably won't be a problem at night.
I'm questioning whether you are on any oral 5ASA meds such as Asacol?? considering you have cecum involvement....(I'm assuming since there is a form of UC where it's both ends involved with between clear).
that form can eventually become pancolitis from what I read...just something for you to be aware.
The Rowasa should be tapered. Do the 2 weeks and taper the morning one firstly for you to be on the nightly for at least another week or more once you're completely off the morning dosage.
then if you're good on that, you can consider to taper the night dosage...there is a process, but basically your symptoms rule how fast/slow to taper.
Make sure you get lots of refills.
When do you see the doc again?
*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 !!!
