Last week I was worried about taking Canasa, well... I tried it.... doesn't work for me. It makes me feel crappy and not fuctioning properly, and gives me diarrhea almost right after I take it. :( AND.. I still see blood when I go potty. I've been going potty more than normal. It's really frustrating me! I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I'm so frustrated and annoyed with this.
week 3 and counting with minor bleeding. :(

Any suggestions?

Why not try Cortifoam? I can't take Canasa either. I run to the bathroom right after or I wake up in the middle of the night miserable. Cortifoam is much easier to deal with, in my opinion. You don't feel the foam at all and it stops bleeding for me in a few days if I'm really diligent about using it and not skipping doses.

Have you checked in with your doc since trying the Canasa? I would call and see what s/he says.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll ask my doctor about that.
