After 3 years of being in good health, I had a bad flu and a bad flare up. Been to the loo 8 times a day.
Have started taking cortico steroid once a day and salofalk once a day along with asacol 6 tablets a day
How long does it take on an average to recover. So nervous!!!!!
Best remission strategy- positive attitude and optimism
Diagnosed in Feb 2006
6 asacols a day, probiotics, hydrocortisone enema, vitamins, folic acid.
Headed towards remission. Wish me luck

When my doc puts me on pred for my flares it usually takes about 2 weeks but he puts me on a low dose (20 mg). Good Luck!
3x3 colazol a day - trying generic again
currently flaring...not as bad as the last one though
2x2 lialda starting 11/15/08

rowasa enema
zoloft - anxiety got a little out of control after last flare.
