I am extending the 24 hours to 28, 30, etc each day to eventually go off the tramadol. I'm not sure I need it anymore (guess I'll find out - lol!) My hip i great now, just some OS back pain.... but even that is some better now that my hip is redone and my legs are the same length and my limp is pretty much gone....!
Yes, I know the guinea pig feeling. I have that a lot in regard to my UC.
(Incidentally - I've been on this dose of Asacol for about
10 years, so.... I doubt I'd have any new effects from it, but I do know the UC itself can cause night sweats.....)
Have been cool as a cucumber since that one night.
Thanks for listening!
