sure, cgk!! i hope it helps. i was really desperate at the time when i started feeling those UC pains as i got to 5 mg. i just went to walgreens and bought the 4 mg cherry lozenges. i figured what the heck? i knew surgery was around the corner anyway if i couldn't get off of pred.
i was shocked my gi went for it, too. i ended up seeing him after i had been on lozenges and told him how much they helped me. he knew about the studies so he wrote me a script for the patches. once i got to 5 lozenges a day, my teeth were getting really gross so it was just easier putting a patch on instead.
