Thanks! I never thought about
saving any - I throw it down the drain. My medications cost me nothing. Anyway, I NEVER felt immediately better from any and I can't use mesalamines of any kind. I, however, have retained the protofoam overnight many times after considerable pain and cramping for about
an hour - lots of effort. AND in the mornign I feel worse and have more problems. I just know that rectal meds is what would get me to remission. Oh well, seeing that specialist in a couple weeks and that question is high on my list - rectal meds.
Senior - New diagnosed with proctosigmoiditis - 6/2008 Tried, Colozal, steroid enemas, etc. - started working but severe side effects occurred. No mesalamines!!
