I was on Rowasa until apparently I could no longer get it. Now I am using Perrigo brand enemas and so far so good, but I was wondering what other people have experienced with this product. Your experiences are welcome.

It's one of the generics. Some UCers have reported problems with the squeeze-bottles in earlier threads, but the med itself seems to be as effective as original Rowasa. / Old Hat (nearly 30 yrs with left-sided UC ... [etc.])

It works for me, but the bottles are somewhat harder to squeeze than another generic Rowasa I've had. And the tips are longer and have less lube on them.

I've never used the brand name so I can't compare to that.
