I don't take Nulev anymore, but I'm just curious. Has anyone else tried it? In my opinion, it tastes okay, but is useless and doesn't do a thing. They gave it to me when I was first diagnosed; I took it in desperation when I got cramps even though it didn't do anything. Just wondering about other people's experiences.

It helps for certain types of cramps. It doesn't do anything for me for my UC pain, but it helped the IBS cramps that would literally make me puke. It helps the ones that come, grip, then go, come, grip then go.

You might want to consider asking your doctor for dicyclomine (Bentylol/Bentyl)
*Heather* Status: flaring...Asacol 3 twice daily; Salofalk enemas nightly
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~UC meds: Asacol (3 @ 2x 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/supplementsProbiotics....(RenewLife Ultimate Flora Critical Care + Primadophilus Reuteri). @ 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 !!!

I don't get too much cramping anymore, but I'll keep it in mind in case I ever flare badly, thanks!
