I've been experiencing marked dizziness, really for the first time. I think I might fall over sometimes!
I wasn't sure if it was from re-starting Asacol (my Rx ran out and I was without for about
a week), or prednisone (but only 20 mg). I asked my doc, and she said although Asacol lists dizziness among the effects, the studies show little difference from the placebo (she had neat links to every kind of study on her computer). So, don't think it's that.
I'll try drinking more water, that's easy and makes some sense. I notice it most when I'm in stores, and that's also when you can easily get dehydrated. And I had a lot of watery D the past few weeks.
49 year old female attorney, diagnosed UC/pancolitis 1985, no surgery but much suffering. Asacol/5ASA 6x400 mg maintenance for 20+ years; use prednisone & Rowasa for flares.
August 2008 sought care of naturopathic doctor. Food sensitivity test showed wheat/gluten, other intolerances; eliminated all wheat/gluten from my diet. Probiotics (Ultimate Flora, 50 billion), trying Curamin.
Flaring, seasonal? or supplements too harsh? Back on prednisone, down to 10 mg. Waiting for insurance decison on Humira...
