I started entyvio infusions the end of April. I noticed improvement in my ulcerative colitis symptoms not long after, and was very pleased . With my doctors assistance I gradually weaned myself from my previous medications (Uceris, Lialda, Canasa suppositories ) By the end of July my symptoms started returning and in many ways became worse (frequent urgency, abdominal discomfort almost all of the time, and
bleeding. After a colonoscopy several weeks ago ( which showed mildly active and moderately active colitis) my gastroenterologist prescribed uceris which helped somewhat but not as much as in the past). I am disappointed to say the least and dealing at times with the fear I won’t get to the toilet in time Is the Worst! Im now wondering if my symptoms are due to my going off the Lialda (4 pills a day) and /or canasa suppositories nightly . Do any of you who are on entyvio also take these other medications? Thank you!
