You shouldn't take tylenol PM every night its just benadryl with tylenol. Why subject your body to all the tylenol if you dont need it, just take benadryl or the generic kind of benedryl. I have been using something called "LunaSom" sold at Walgreens and it has so far been working very well for me. I am nowhere near as groggy as I am from benadryl. Plus I think taking benadryl every night made me more susceptible to colds etc... and I always wondered if it contributed to my UC - as I had been having trouble sleeping for a year or two before UC diagnosis, and had been frequently taking benadryl. I wonder if it could screw up the allergic response, taking anti-histamine every day?
Diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis 6/2006 at age 26 after sudden E.R. visit
~Pancolitis (Mild to Moderate)
~I had Mono in 2000
On Colazal 3x3/day; Folic Acid 1mg; Calcium/Magnesium/Zinc combo
(Generic Balsalazide not as effective for me)
In remission about 2-3 months after E.R. but not back to normal!
I hate Ulcerative Colitis and can't wait till we eradicate it
