It should be OK for your UC...but it is hard on the liver.
how long are you to be using it?
Make sure the doc does liver enzyme tests....firstly as a baseline and then because of the other meds you're on...I'm assuming you had them done anyway considering the meds you're on??
The other thing you could consider is to take L-Lysine...do a search for coldsores (herpes simplex 1 or 2) and its dosage and use..etc.
You might not have to use the acyclovir.
*Heather* Status: ...Asacol 3 twice daily; Salofalk enemas every 2nd night
~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/supplements; Probiotics....(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 !!!
