yes I did get rid of my ulcers with asacol and rowasa, but the urgency and the diarreah never went away! Never ever. I was still having accidents in my pants all the time. How, if the doctor looks up there and it's completely healed, can you still have the symptoms except the bleeding stopped?
Asacol, starting off the first week, headaches and diarreah, long term I was completely worn out. I couldn't function. Brain fog and no energy. I also had blisters on my lips and I posted on that several times asking if anyone experienced that and saw the doctor. He said no one has reported blisters on the lip. The combo of asacol and rowasa was too much for my body to handle! At one point I couldn't even move in bed, knees ached, body ached like the flu, but I didn't have the flu. Nausau so sick to my stomach all the time. Here's something weird as sick to my stomach as I was for weeks and weeks I never throw up, it was always the other end that was affected.
I think it's the coating on the drugs that get to me. Did you read my post about chronic diareeah and bacteria infection? I mean, it mimmicks UC symptoms too.
If I had to choose between, colozal, pentasa and asacol, I would have to go back to asacol I think. I'm truly better off right now though. I noticed the supplements that I'm taking have a lot of vitamin A in them. Is there a link I wonder, b/c they seem to be helping a lot along with the citricidal.
