I just went to the GI doctor and she wanted to prescribe me lialda but I don't think this is a good idea seeing how I have a history of heart inflation due to a possible side effect of meslamine
22 year old male, diagnosed with severe ulcerative colitis on Jan 7th 2013, still remain in flare.. Discontinued asacol after a hospital stay where they were convinced I had an allergic reaction causing inflammation around the heart muscle.
I am also allergic to mesalamines and need to avoid them. Maybe someone here can recommend a non-mesalamine rectal med for you since rectal meds in general are so effective. You could also look at the resources section to find information about
Probiotics such as prescript
ion VSL#3DS or the high potency OTC probiotics found in our signatures might help you. There are studies that show psyllium SEED, curcumin, and boswellia can help to maintain remission. Since everyone is different I suggest you look at our signatures to see all the different remedies that each of us use and find those that work with you.
For me individually natural supplements are very effective but they can only work if I also monitor my diet to avoid triggering foods. I suggest keeping a food diary. Gluten and dairy are the usual suspects but any food can trigger problems in some individuals.
