I only meant the high dose if YOU felt it was ok for you- speaking personally, I know I can handle that dose. If you've onyl ever been on 40 or below, then NO, I wouldn't up it without prior approval. But, if you're hesitant to go the ER route, which is understandable, then ask about
something like immodium, just to get you thru 'til the 28th. I've never gone to the ER for my UC, always figured I'd rather deal with my own doc, as opposed to some resident provider. The insomnia is awful, but remember that it will be short-lived- there is a light at the end of the tunnel!
