This past August I was hospitalized with
acute UC and placed on steroids, Asacol and Mesalamine
I have experienced many flare ups with minimal periods of
inactive disease. I do not want to have my colon removed, as I am
only 29 years old. I am currently tapering off Prednisone and am
still taking 12 tabs of Asacol daily and one Rowasa enema nightly.
This regimen has helped, but if I miss even one night of taking the
Rowasa I develop rectal bleeding immediately.
