Yup, I started out on Asacol, added Rowasa a week later, and was pretty close to remission after being on the two for about
a month and a half, then I picked up a tummy bug from my son, which threw me back into full flare again. My doc and I decided I'd been sick for long enough that I just needed to get well as fast as possible.
I hope your antibiotics don't cause you any problems. Are you taking a probiotic? That might help!
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 15mg 10mg of Prednisone (quick taper), Culturelle probiotic, and Zoloft (25 mg).
