I have been taking 50 mg 6mp for about
a year or little less. In the beginning I felt tired-er than before but the prev. drugs were not stopping the bleeding so the ante was upped with MP6. I function fine on it. Several months ago doc increased it to 75 mg because bleeding still present. I tried it for 2 months, no improvement so I went back to 50 mg.
My only MP6 side effects are easier bruising, not fatigue any more.
I recently changed my diet to the SCD diet (with modifications) and bleeding stopped in 2 days. Now 2 weeks into it I have had extremely little blood showing. I tried this same diet several years ago on different meds (Asacol) and it didn't work.
Ulcerative colitis 10 years
progressed from proctitis to left-sided a couple years ago.
Meds: 50 mg MP6 and (3) times 3 Balsalazide per day
Rowasa enema as needed (when bleeding)
Jan 2010 started SCD diet (again-tried 5 years earlier no improvement)
This time measurable improvement-bleeding stopped, better behaved colon
Diet modification: (within SCD) cut down to 1 fruit per day, no dried fruit and no juices
Have not added yogurt because past intolerance to yogurt even SCD homemade
Tried DCCC cheese-poor results
I have tried almost every UC diet there is with little improvement until just now
Current condition-best in a very long time
I have been tested for gluten and dairy-both tests showed no intolerance (haha)
