Thank you for the link Keith, and the info Christie. Since I have been flaring so bad, I haven't taken it because I am terrified of getting any worse. I am seeing my G.I. tomorrow so I'll talk to him about everything and see what he says. I have only been in remission, or what I consider remission, for like 3 months this year out of my 12 years of UC. In January I was exercizing, doing yoga, feeling great in remission, then my Mom passed away! I have been so-so since but think the colonoscopy made me flare up! I have had this one STUBBORN ulcer in my rectum for maybe 4 years. I've tried sooo many meds with no success. My doctor gets so frustrated and so do I!
