I would get a boxed or canned chicken broth that says NO MSG. Swanson makes a "Natural Goodness" line that doesn't have it. A lot of those little cubes have it. I think pineapple juice would be a no-no because it has a little bit of pulp. I know orange juice is a no-no. Apple juice and white grape juice are both ok, as is lemonade and gatorade (not red or purple, I think). I didn't have a problem with drinking the prep at all.
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,
40mg 30mg 20mg of Prednisone (quick taper), Culturelle probiotic, and Zoloft (25 mg).
