Sorry to hear about your daughter. As for the Rowasa suppositories, those have been discontinued. The only Rowasa that you can get is the Rowasa Suspension Enemas. I have found that when I am in a flare, the Rowasa helps immensly. However, the first few days, depending on how bad the flare it, I will have cramping and the urge to go immediately after doing the enema. As the days go on and the longer I keep the enema in, the better it gets and helps with the flare. Sorry, and I hope that helps somewhat.
