Hello all..I am a new member and for the past few months have been browsing the forums and found a lot of information and tips that helped me talk to my GI about different medications. It seemed like Asacol, Pentasa, Salofalk..nothing was working and my GI was urging me to try Imuran & Remicade, which I kept pushing off. Finally 2 weeks ago, he prescribed Mezavent, 3 pills to be taken all at once. The same day that I started Mezavent, I also started eating a piece of fresh turmeric root...Well...wonders - from Day 1, the cramps, the gas, mucous, all disappeared, and I am delighted to say I have at the most 1-2 almost normal bowel movements, no mucous, blood, still some pain, but I feel a new person..getting better each day, and am able to eat all foods.....Dont know what's working - the turmeric or the Mezavent!!! Thanks to all you fellow UC sufferers for sharing your experiences..and wish everyone well.
