does anyone else have stomach ulcers? i was put on nexium awhile back for acid reflux and stomach ulcer. the reason i ask is does the meds. you take for your uc bother your stomach ulcers? i stopped taking pred. cause it was starting to affect my stomach i guess from being on it for so long. i was prescribed pentasa 500mg 4x a day. i havent started it yet cause i'm afraid that it will mess with my stomach as one of the side effects could be stomach bleeding. i was reading that on the pamplet they gave me with the pentasa.

i also take nexium 40mg once a day for acid reflux.

started taking one a day acidophilus probiotic

one a day omega 3 fatty fish oil capsule

Usually the meds given for Uc are enteric coated. Meaning that the medicine inside is protected with an outer coating to survive the stomach acid and make it's way to the intestines. Many of the meds for Uc is best if taken with food to prevent any such thing from happening. Just be sure to take your Pentasa with food to avoid any complications.
