For me, so far, the Asacol tabs and Salofalk enemas is what I've used for 20 years. I hope and pray that the success continues for a long time yet.
Not all can take 5ASA meds unfortunately, but there are some topical options in the steroid department, There is going to be one that will be released in the colon rather than in the terminal ileum as is Entocort. I believe that will be out this year.

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
