Quincy, to answer your question, I am on 1200mg of mesalamine tablets 3 time a day and I alternate using Canasa suppositories and Cortison suppositories nightly. I am considering using the mesalamine enemas again as they seemed to have worked well in the past, after my hospital stay in August last year, but I was also on mega doses of prednisone at the time. I'm also not crazy about
using them but I'm sure I'm not alone in that and will do what I have to do when necessary.
I'm thinking they may have a laxative effect, which would really be helpful. Thanks for asking.
