Thanks everyone for advice so far.....
I wsa on pred for 3 months, most of it @ 80mg, then worked down, so you can imagine the side effects.
I've always read and understood that 5ASA's are for maintaining remission, and will not help in dealing with a flare.
I'm currently maintaining the original dosage (2x3 daily) Do you think increasing this will help, and to what level?
BM's quincy, I'm estimating about
5-6 trips daily, but as mentioned, nothing much worth going for, other than small amounts of blood/mucus.
My medication for asthma I very much doubt is affecting anyting, nohing has changed for the last 10+ years and i've been on such meds for nearly life, so it's unlikely that they may be affecting it do you think?
In terms of Pro-Biotics, I have been taking 1-2 'Jarro-Dophillum EPS' per day, a very high potency PB tablet.
any more advice is much welcomed folks - thanks
