Day 2 for me.
And feeling LOTS better.
Since I'm feeling so much relief from the UC symptoms, I haven't noticed any side effects other than a few warm periods which are a great improvement over the chills I've been having.
I'm on 40 mg. and splitting them 20 at breakfast and 20 at lunch. I'll check with the NP on Friday to make sure that's ok... I'm sure I did it that way last time. I do have one other side effect... they give me indigestion and 4 at once, I think I might be over the top.
I'm also switching to colazal (those are some big a** pills!) which probably aren't helping the digestion much but oh man I'm feeling better than yesterday!
Crossing my fingers for you, too, bella! I'm ready for remission and toilet liberation!
