im on the aussie version of asacol (salofalk mesalazine) and im 25 weeks pregnant (and flaring) its much better to be on it than off when you have UC.
and its okay for breastfeeding. GI and OB/GYN both say benefits outweigh the risks.
and i have heard from tons of ladies that took it throughout pregnancy with perfectly healthy babies.
steph - 33 - female - gold coast australia - UC since 2000
i do believe im in NOT in REMISSION anymore! bugger!
seems to be milder than normal tho.... blood n mucous in mornings and almost normal in evenings!
IM now 22 weeks PREGGERS and feeling much better!
mesalazine granules 3g x1 a day (much nicer than a million tablets a day),
tapering pred by 5mg every 5 days, 20mg at the moment
pregnancy and breastfeeding vitamins, xango juice 30ml x3 a day, vitamin d3,
i still eat what i want, when i want, if i feel like eating at all ... diet doesn't affect my UC.
