I'm in the midst of a horrific flare and am curious whether anyone uses over the counter medicines like Imodium or Pepto Bismol to help with their symptoms. I haven't had a solid BM since May, but in the last week, all BMs have essentially been liquid, frequent, and I've had stomach pain at night.
I'm tired of spending the night napping on my bathroom floor or staying cloistered in the house and thought that maybe an OTC medication might give my prescriptions a boost...and me a little relief. I take two 800mg Asacol HD twice daily (although my doctor just told me to go to three times a day) and am starting on Rowasa enemas as soon as I get home from work tonight, but am desperate at this point.
Any suggestions or experiences would be much appreciated!
