Agreed, up your dose. If daily enemas resolve it then you know it's UC. Daily enemas can be used indefinitely in a remission.
Why are you on only 3,200mgs of delzicol? Should be 4,800mgs.
I'm almost in a remission is no reason to taper down your meds. Achieve a solid remission, wait multiple months and then slowly and carefully taper down. However, realize that textbook and what you actually need are two different realities. Textbook says 2,400mgs oral mesalamine a day is enough to maintain a remission. Reality is it could require 4,800 mgs and daily rowasa or any combination of doses in between. Everyone has different disease severities and that impacts what we really need.
