Hi everyone, just a question of the canasa suppositories that my doctor prescribed for me on my last appointment. i was diagnosed with ulcerative proctitis about
a month ago and was on the cortifoam foam nightly for 30 days and on asacol 400mg. 2 tablets 3 times a day. I no longer have blood or mucus and have also changed my diet to more fruits and fiber and drinking aloe juice and coconut water. Anyway, doc prescribed the canasa suppositories to take every 3rd night, but why should I take these if I already see a difference. I stopped seeing the mucous and blood probably about
10 to 12 days into using the cortifoam and asacol, but I continue to take asacol tablets but now down to 1 tablet 3 times a day. The instructions on the canasa suppositories reads that they are for an active flare, which I do not have right now, so why would doc tell me to use them every 3rd night? I do understand he does not want me to get the blood and/or mucus again, but isn't this overkill? Thank you for listening.
