How do you know if mesalamines aren't working? I was on 4 Lialda a day for 2 weeks - switched to Colazal 9 a day because the Lialda was making me sick to my stomach - and have been on that for 2 weeks. So 4 weeks total.
For the last 3 weeks I've been on Rowasa and Canasa nightly. I also did a 4 week prednisone taper and stopped at 2.5 mg on Monday.
I seem to get better in the beginning and then I seem to plateau. Going 1 to 4 times in the morning. Some D some formed some harder pieces. Some days tiny bit of blood, some days none, some days more.
Are the mesalamines just not going to get me where I need to be?
