Thanks for responding. I'm currently taking Asacol, Rowasa and probiotics. I can't swallow the Fish oil or I would be taking those, too. My kidney, unfortunately, was malignant but contained, so I'm one of the "lucky" ones. Or at least that's what they tell me. I was wondering about
the Concerta only because it's a stimulant and like I said, my symptoms have improved since I stopped taking it. I thought I was heading towards remission until this morning when my old friend bloody mucus showed up, yet again!! I find myself speculating and speculating as to what caused this and what eases the symptoms and every single time, I wind up hitting a brick wall. This disease is such a mind f#@%!! Sometimes I really feel like I'm going insane!!
I seem to be doing okay without the Concerta. I'm more confused than normal, but my body could also be experiencing some kind of withdrawels from stopping them so abruptly, so I'll just wait and see what happens. I hate pills and it seems as though that's all I'm doing is popping pills. I don't mind pills if they're "good" pills, but these are "boring" pills!! LOL The rowasa is a pain in the ass, too (no pun intended)!! LOL
Thanks for remembering me and I'll keep you posted. I'm also going to look into the provigil. Thanks for that suggestion.
