By not taking medication, you can be setting yourself up for disease progression/severe future flares/or the increased risk of colon cancer. By taking a 5-ASA it has been shown to decrease our risks of colon cancer significantly. Also by taking your medications, you may not have to be so "accepting" of having a weekly occurance of D.
The meds I take are:
Colazal - 9 daily - I feel it has helped me 100% more then Asacol. My symptoms increased in the beginning but after 2 weeks of adjustment, the number of bms went down alot, the pain lessened and the bleeding lightened up.
6mp - 50mgs(Mon,Wed,Fri,Sat & Sun), 75mgs(Tues & Thurs) - this is what helped me the most. Of course this is considered a heavy duty drug and mostly reserved for patients that are resistant to other types of meds and/or are steroid dependant.
Canasa Suppositories - nightly - these have helped alot as well. It keeps my rectal flares under control.
Left sided Uc since '92 - meds - Colazal, Canasa (when needed), 6MP (50-75mgs), Forvia, Biotin (IN REMISSION - sort of!)
Secondary Raynauds Syndrome '04 - meds - Norvasc
Fibromyalgia '06 - no meds
Severe seasonal allergies - meds - Allegra
