"This medicine is a selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SSNRI)."
Does this mean that boosting serotnin improvese UC ?
I don't know enough to make that assertion. I just know my gut feels much calmer. It's a difference from uncertainty and questioning to a sureness and lack of pain/agitation that feels very soothing.
28 year old male.
Diagnosed 2003. Left sided colitis became pancolitis (mid way through transverse colon).
I am in a very delicate remission from Remicade and probiotics, but it is not smooth or pain free.
Have tried: Mesalamines, mesalamine enemas, steroid enemas, 6mp, entocort. Began Remicade late January, 2012.
