Hi..I remember those symptoms well. How long have you been using the Rowasa nightly?
How many times a day are you going? no dirarhea?
Are you close to your period?
When exactly did you start having any symptoms of change?
What probiotic are you on exactly:? Replete forte?
It wasn't the rotation diet that caused your flare.
The Rowasa takes a while to kick in if you just started using them...
you might also consider to up the Asacol to 8 daily...4 twice daily..
You could ask the doc for a prescript
ion of dicyclomine..I started with 10mg used a few times a day. Amazing for the butt throbbing and gurgling.
You could use a suppository..either 5ASA or steroid...during the day..but the Rowasa should kick in soon.
*Heather* Status..Asacol 6 (3 twice daily); enemas every 5th night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotics....(Natural Factors Protec, Primadophilus Reuteri Pearls, Natural Factors Ultimate)....1 each @ bedtime
~various digestive enzymes as needed
~Ranitidine (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 !!!
