I posted a large study re the effectiveness of mesalamine vs cortisone enemas and the findings were about
equal...I was on cortifoam for about
a year and wish I'd just stuck with mesalamine rectal products as they have less potential for side effects ie skin thinning.
Maybe one day the FDA will finally approve mesalamine foams
Dx'd with moderate Pancolits 05/07 better with Pentasa and rectal meds as needed.
I also take Probiotics, Fish Oil, Curcumin, Benefiber and cannot tolerate artificial sweetners (never could even before UC) I also stay away from products with high fructose corn syrup.
