my name is reed . i am a sophomore in college and i have had raging colitis symptoms for the past year. i have tried 4 out of 5 of the ASA drugs (asachol, lialda, and two others) and nothing has woked. i have recently been having bloody stools and need help. i have also taken the holistic route with natural supplements and so far have been unsuccessful. i can barely sleep and have to get up about
5 times a night to use the bathroom. this is truly taking over my life and i need to get it into remission. if i cant then i may consider taking a semester off college to get healthy but i would like to graduate on time.
my doctor now wants me to go on azathioprine which is a large step up from the ASA drugs.
-i was just wondering if anyone has been in a similar situation
-have you had trouble with the ASA drugs? and if so how did you get into remission?
-have you taken azathioprine? if so did it work and were there any problems with side effects?
thank you for your insight
