Re: Ulcerative Colitis Flare-Up

has your wife tried Rowasa? it is the same active ingredient as Lialda (mesalamine) but in a topical form - an enema. there are many studies out there that show that adding Rowasa to oral mesalamine during treatment of a flare can reduce the duration and severity of a flare significantly. The thought of an enema may be unpleasant but since she is feeling so miserable I am sure that anything is worth a shot.

good luck!
