Rowasa, Cort enemas or Canasa suppositories. Also, did you doctor say anything about increaseing the Colazal? I am on nine a day. Finally off the pred and feel well after a seven month flare!!! yippeeeeeee. By the way, which cruise line are you sailing with? We were on a Panama canal (which did NOT go into the canal) cruise two years ago with MSC Lirica...worse cruise line we ever sailed.
