Hi...you should call the doc and request a prescript
ion for rectal meds such as the Rowasa retention enemas...or even the Canasa suppositories (the retention meds would be better)...and have him start using them at night.
The other suggestion is to request an antispasmodic...I use dicyclomine and it's awesome for me. Your son can take it about
a half hour before he goes to bed. That will help with the rectal meds as well...meaning to help settle the colon/rectum and make it easier to retain the meds.
*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
~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 !!!
