The past couple of days I have been taking only 6 mg of the budesonide before bed. Been taking 9 mg of budesonide …started that 8/1).
I’ve been taking 2 tablets of Welchol first thing in the morning and again at lunch with some food. (The prescript
ion the new GI wrote said 2 tablets twice a day).
So….the timing of when I am taking the welchol …there is a direct correlation so far to what happens during the day. And night.
I’m averaging getting up 3 times in the night to go …small movements. I’m averaging only once or twice a day, a movement, and all movements night and day are forming up. More stools. Or chicken McNuggets …or mush. Much less watery.
I did get a confirmation of my Inflectra moving to 10 mg every 8 weeks.
I’m also scheduled for a colonoscopy the beginning of January. Last one was March 29, 2021 and the results were good I guess because I ever really heard much about
it afterwards from old GI except that “everything looked good”.
I’ll keep updating. It’s only been 2 days taking the welchol, the way I’m. Is taking it, and the budesonide this way….before bed. I’m hoping as a stay with this pattern …things continue to improve.
Maybe going back up to the 9 mg of budesonide before bed will help me sleep through the night, but I know the new GI wants me to get off that if possible, so I’m going to continue with the 6 mg before bed. Yeah, getting up 3 times in the night isn’t great, but I think it’s worth it to take less of the budesonide.
Thank God I am able to go right back to sleep after my night time get ups.
