Hi bluejean..welcome to the forum!
What dosage of the Rowasa are you on? 2g or 4g?
How much of your colon is affected...throughout or limited?
Many thanks again for all the replies. Quincy: I am on the 4g (60ml) Rowasa, which I've taken every night for about
6 months. It worked really well after 6 weeks (to the point I finally had normal colored toilet paper for the first time in a year), so I gradually started to taper. It immediately came back and, after continuing it for another 4 months, it's no where near where it got after those first 6 weeks That's pretty much the reason for my question, I thought maybe with Rowasa there's a point of no return type thing.
In general my problem isn't too bad (8 inches, rectosigmoid). Since supposedly Rowasa works best immediately after going to the bathroom, I've started trying using 1/2 bottle in the morning, and the rest before bed. However, I think I probably need something a bit more.

If your UC is limited to the lower areas you might be better off with Colazal as it tends to reach further down than Asacol.
I didn't realize that. Is that just something people find to generally be true from experience, or are there by chance studies that have shown this??
