Currently I'm using Canasa 1000mg and not sure if it working or not
Will Canasa suppository helps in reducing the inflamation of UC which is limited left-sided of the colon?

Please advise...Thanks

Left-sided....does your include the entire descending colon or some of the descending colon?

The suppositories are meant to deal with the rectum. Considering that UC starts at the rectum, it should be dealt with using direct methods ... rectal meds.

Enemas or foams will reach into the sigmoid.

Are you on oral meds as well?

The suppositories can be used 2 - 3 times a day.

*Heather* Status..Asacol 6 (3 twice daily); enemas every 4th night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotics....(Natural Factors Protec 2 or 3  +   1 or 2 Primadophilus Reuteri Pearls @ bedtime
~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 !!!
