There are are only 3 types of enemas. Rowasa (mesalamine), Salofalk (this is not available in the states) and the steroid enemas such as Cortenemas (hydrocortisone). Then there is the Cortifoam which is a steroid foam. Then you get into the suppositories such as Canasa.
I personally can not do mesalamines (they increase my symptoms) but Rowasa is usually the main enema given for Uc because it is the main stream rectal med and considered the safest for long term.
