I'm not on any prescriptions. I really felt that asacol and imuran didn't do anything at all for me. Prednisone helps immediately but gave me osteoperosis sooooo It's RX free for me.
Here's what I think helps me the most: Diet, digestive enzymes, probiotics, OmegaXL.
I am not in remission but am slowly going to get there if I can just cut out the junk food and some other things I shouldn't be consuming.
I was fortunate to try the OmegaXL/UC study and got some free samples which helped some very heavy bleeding slow down. Now I have very little blood and formed stools most of the time. If anyone is interested I still have the contact information. I posted a thread about it awhile back and surprisingly nobody responded.
