In the US the 5ASA enemas are called Rowasa. I've used them! I think they were a key tool in getting off of pred this last go around.
No, their not "fun", but they do work! They really aren't as bad as my imagination made them out to be.
I actually used them nightly for about three months - my flare was that bad. Then I tapered to every other night, every third night, etc. I eventually lost track and ended up stopping... However, keep your dreams in mind - and a calendar at hand - and you can do anything!
