Hi..have you tried any rectal meds in the past?
You might consider to add a fibre supplement to help bulk the stool and form it a bit more...in a sense, it does help slow down the bms a bit.
But, you'll still have to deal with the flare and since it'll take a while for the 6mp to kick in, maybe ask the doc for rectal meds.
What dosage of Asacol are you on?
When were you diagnosed?
*Heather* Status: mild flare enemas tapered to every 2nd night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~UC meds: Asacol (3 x2 daily); Salofalk enemas nightly for flares & taper to maintenance
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed; Ranitidine (reflux); Effexor XR 75mg(depression); Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~vitamins/minerals/supplements; Probiotics....(Natural Factors Protec, Primadophilus Reuteri Pearls, Natural Factors Ultimate). @ bedtime
~various digestive enzymes as needed; started Omega 3
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
