I was just wondering what drugs the people who suffer with UC take while in remission. I THINK (hope anyway) I have finally reached remission but I still take the Colazal, 6MP, probiotic, calcium, fish oil capsule and multivitamin. I have stopped the Cort enemas (tapered off actually) and canasa suppositries as I feel I really don't need them at this point. I have my blood drawn monthly to check my WBC because of the 6MP and liver function tests done every other month.

Update 11/03/08...finally in remission!! Hope I don't jinx myself. Off the prednisone since 11/01/08...now see if I can stay off for longer than two weeks. Other meds: 6MP (75 mgm), colazal (6 per day), Benicar and Toprol (high blood pressure meds), Probiotic (2 per day), fish oil capsule and multi-vitamin and calcium with vitamin D.
