I have been trying to get up to 75 mg. of 6MP for two months. Every time I try to go from 50 MG I have side effects hard to live with - shakey, dizzy, headaches, nausea, tired, etc. I can tolerate 50 mg. but will that be enough. about
time for 6 MP to "kick in" but not so far. My gastro doc seems to think I have to be on 75 mg. for it to work - any opinions out there.
I have been trying rectal meds - three different ones like two nights a piece but they only make me worse! My UC is left sided but mostly rectal.
