I wonder if the Canasa is being absorbed when I insert it after a vitamin E enema. The oil is very think, not sure Canasa can penetrate through it.

Thoughts?

use the 5ASA retention enemas.
*Heather* Status: ...Asacol 3 twice daily; Salofalk enemas every 2nd night

~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!!)

Got it. Why are they better than suppositories? I have UP with a cecil patch, BTW.

Hi..you should be on both oral and rectal meds...oral to take care of the cecal patch (Pentasa does dissolve in the terminal ileum and will hit the patch nicely methinks) Asacol does as well, but not all have it dissolving in their colons. It's worth a try with that firstly, however.

The retention enemas will hit all the rectum and the sigmoid...for yours may be limited now, but there's still a chance it can spread upward.
The enemas also have 2g or 4g medication dosages.....more bang for the buck...

I base that on my 20 years experience of using only oral/rectal 5ASA meds...and my UC has never been as bad as the first year. A good track record and my c-scopes say it works as well.


Low in the rectum inflammation is difficult to treat because even with suppositories or the enemas concentrated in just the rectum...it's the most stubborn area.

Hope you feel better soon....

Thanks again.

So, I just got off three months of Colazol. It didn't work for me this time, seemed to make it worse. I had D on it and normally, even in a flare I don't have D. I just worry about taking oral meds while pregnant.

Well, many on here have been pregnant and on meds....
You best make decisions because natural supplements would have me more worried.

Have you never been on Asacol or Pentasa?
They are topical...do you understand that part of how they work?

They're topical, meaning they dispurse through the colon not systemic like prednisone which affects the whole body and ultimately the inflammation overall...that's why there are so many side effects.

Please do the research on it....I cannot encourage that enough...because you're making decisions on non-facts and fearing something that you've not any information about.

You don't really have a choice since you're wanting to be pregnant.
