Have you ever used rectal meds? I've just been recently diagnosed, but it seems to make sense to use those every few nights, even when in remission, as flares start in the rectum and work their way up. Maybe they will help you stay in remission for lonter periods of time. Also, do you ever take more than just 6 Asacol a day?
Symptoms began in November 2008, ~4 weeks after giving birth to my son.
Eased for ~3 weeks in December, possibly b/c of probiotic use?
Returned in January 2009 (with a vengeance), diagnosed with pancolitis on January 30.
Currently taking Asacol (400mg 4 pills 3x daily), Rowasa nightly, Culturelle probiotic, and Zoloft (25 mg).
