I was putting my daughters Asacol in her pill box and noticed how much more was left in the bottle....i had been giving her one 400mg pill three times a day. Then i reread the bottle and i was supposed to be giving her 3 X 400mg pills a day. I feel awful about
this although she seems to be doing okay....about
3 BMs a day, and transient belly pain, losing weight....but i realize it could be worse. I guess i should tell her doc and see if he wants me to continue more med rather than stop like he had originally said after 14 days.
I just can't believe with my daughters vitamins she will be taking 16 pills a day....i can see why the compliance with the treatment for this disease is so poor with teens and kids.
Thanks for letting me vent.
Mother of 9 year old with right sided and transverse UC
