I broke down today and had the GI call in a prescript
ion for Canasa. Not ready to take on enemas yet. Baby steps please. I had been hoping that the prednisone would put me into a total and complete remission but it doesn't look like it is going to happen (very surprised on that) so we are adding something to the mix. The prednisone has improved my condition considerably but not thrown me into that remission I had been hoping for. Amazingly, I have had zero side effects from the pred so far. I feel like I could take it forever, but I know I can't and refuse to. I thought Canasa was a once per day thing at bedtime but when I picked up the prescript
ion it was for one, two times daily. Didn't really say when. I was worried about
using it at bedtime because I seem to run to the bathroom several times at bedtime and throughout the night, almost always being nothing but clear gas. Don't even have to wipe. Is this going to make it difficult to use Canasa at bedtime or should I use it at my better times of the day? I'm thinking about
just using it once per day instead of twice per day. Any thoughts greatly appreciated but am holding off on enemas for now.
