I just started the enemas two week ago for the frist time. I could probably have avoid prednisone and humira both if I could have been pushed to put meds up my butt. It really is NOT that hard and now I am really feeling the difference
also you are NOT on a high dose of asacol..you are actually on a maintance dose. You could probably take a few more of those a day to help get you to remission..
Just my two cents...glad they are working for you!
I second that these docs get kickback..mine is always pushing the latest and greatest...
