I've never taken picolax, but I would suspect any type of discomfort that is caused by inflammation or spasming would only be increased by the purge.
What did you use in the past....picolax or another one?
Do, however, call the doc today and let him know if it worsens.
Are you having lots of gas at this point? Maybe after you're completely cleaned out, you will have some relief.
Is your UC throughout?'
You might ask your doc for some rectal meds .... treating both ends really helps.
Let us know how it goes.
*Heather* Status: maintenance Asacol 6 daily + Salofalk enemas every 3rd night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~UC meds: Asacol (3 x2 daily); Salofalk enemas nightly for flares & taper to maintenance
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed; Ranitidine (reflux); Effexor XR 75mg(depression); Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~vitamins/minerals/supplements; Probiotics....(Natural Factors Protec, Primadophilus Reuteri Pearls). @ bedtime
~various digestive enzymes as needed
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
