The suppositories can be used 3 times daily .... I wouldn't think that once a night would be considered treatment. The enemas would still be a better option because it can reach higher throughout all the rectum and into the sigmoid...as well, it's a higher dosage of med, concentrated on the most difficult area to treat.
Wiped-Out....if you had diarrhea...your inflammation is a tad higher than just the rectum. Consider to use the enemas...or if you're averse to them, even consider to "stack" two suppositories at night and one in the morning.
I can relate to the heaving butt syndrome..ugh!
