Thanks, therearemiracles and Eva Lou! I think he's a doll, of course, but I may be a bit biased....
I am in complete remission right now, it seems. No blood, no diarrhea, no urgency. I'm going 1-2 times per day. Apriso is a mesalamine drug; a lot like Lialda in that you only have to take it once per day, but it's formulated to start dissolving at a lower pH. I was doing great on Asacol, but was having a lot of trouble rembering my noon dose (and sometimes my evening dose), and I know that forgetting doses is a good way to start a flare. I've only been on it about
a week and a half, but so far, so good!
Status: Remission since late May 2009!
Symptoms began in November 2008, ~4 weeks after giving birth to my son.
Diagnosed with pancolitis on 1/30/09
Currently taking Apriso (4 pills ONCE!! daily), Rowasa twice weekly, Natural Factors Ultimate probiotic 12/12 Formula, and Zoloft (25 mg).
