I suggest you stay on the rowasa nightly for a week after you're feeling "normal"....then only taper to every second night for about
My suggestion...you can taper quickly...but you may be back to nightly soon enough.
I had an extremely mild flare last Christmas, but tapered too fast and ended up back to square one...I'm now on every third night for this month....
Your body will tellyou what you need anyway....
As long as you have the prescript
ion refills for Rowasa...do what you need to do.
Glad you feel well.

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
