Sorry to hear that. Your doc should be monitoring your blood levels periodically while you're trying 6mp.
Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis spring 1999
C-scope confirmed UC diagnosis 9/18/2007
 
Therapeutic dose sulfasalazine, back on a pred taper for first flare in years. Down to 10 mg and feeling much better.
Probiotics, l-glutamine and fish oil caps. George's aloe vera juice and Mucosaheal.

I hope the new med has you feeling better soon. You're definitely going through the whole gamut of treatment. Are you still on pred and Asacol?

As for surgery...I don't think it's a bad option if all else is failing.

Keep us posted as to how you're doing.

*Heather*Status:mini flare June 23* 6asacol daily+ Salofalk (tapered every 4th night)
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~vitamins/minerals 
~Probiotic 2 (Natural Factors Protec) + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) at bedtime
~Natural Factors Multi Digestive Enzymes with supper
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg;  Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS"  worth it !!!

happydays - you scare me, you have gone from mild to pancolitis in 3 years. I fear I will go the same!

Medical Issue: Rectal Bleeding

Current Diagnosis: Colitis and 2x 1st Degree Internal Hemmeroids

Medication Prescribed: 800mg Mesalazine (Asacol) x 3 per day

Sorry you are not doing any better. I have been on Imuran (similar to 6mp) since April of last year. It took awhile to kick in but it has definitely helped.

You could do a search at the top of the page by 6mp. There are lots of posts on it. Also can you limit your signature to 10 lines or less per forum rules?

Signature looks great....it just helps cut down on space. The key for immune suppresents is you have to give them time to work. Being patient is not so easy when you are in the bathroom all day!
