Max dose on Asacol is 4.8 grams per day, which would be 6 pills per day instead of 4.
On the Delzicol, 1.2 grams per day isn't even a maintenance dose. I wouldn't even consider something as strong as Simponi until you have tried the 4.8 grams per day for a while first. If you've already tried that and tapered back, maybe you need to increase again. I also question how well your gluten free diet is working if you're considering Simponi. You may also want to consider taking much more VSL than what you are taking.
I'm taking 1200mg twice a day of Delzicol, total 2.4 grams. Is that a maintenance dose? As for gluten, there is no doubt that it is a terrible problem for me.
Your information about
histamine on a different thread, got me thinking and researching. It really sounds like I have histamine overload in addition to everything else (or because of everything else). I'm trying to figure out the next step or supplement. Rather than simponi or more Delzicol, I'm thinking about
which DAO supplement I should try. Any advice is appreciated.
