Was just going through my meds I use at different times for some types of rectal inflamation. Sometimes I'm not sure which I should use. Since taking Humira my inflamation comes and goes. It's mostly in the rectum. Before taking Humira I had 35 cm of inflamation . Been much better, but not perfect. Here's my list ,maybe it might help some.

1. Mesalamine rectal enema's 4.0 grams
2. Hydrocort enema's 100mg
3. Canasa supp
4. Cortifoam hydrocort 10%
5. Proctofoam HC 1%. Small applicator
6. Anucort HC supp 25mg
7. Natural vit E supp with coconut oil
8. Proctozone HC hydrocort cream 2.5%
9. Hydrocortisone pramoxine cream 2.5% singles
9. Lidocaine 5%

Sometimes not sure which to use. Have a little inflamation right now. I put them in order of potency. Love to never use them again. Not an option!!! Very confusing.....

Wouldn't we all love to never use them again... I just remind myself I'm lucky I haven't yet had to go on any of the "harder" drugs thanks to the rectal meds!
