Hi...you should call the doc and get in asap....you should also be on rectal meds.
I bled a lot the first few years flaring...it took a while with oral/rectal 5-ASA meds to get it under control.
Get your blood levels checked as well as your vitamin D and Vitamin B12.
Are you male or female?
Call the doc and for sure get on rectal meds. The doc might suggest prednisone....but please don't until you try dealing with it from both ends.
*Heather* Status: ...Asacol 3 twice daily; Salofalk enemas every 3rd 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 !!!
