| | it's getting worse
i have had ulcerative colitis for a few years now and it seems my medicine, colazal, doesn't work anymore. previously i was on azacol which stopped working also.
so now for months i have been going to the bathroom like 10+ times a day, and there is only 24 hours in a day so really it is non-stop. even at night i wake up every 2 hours and have to go and i feel like crap and have bags under my eyes and i have developed anemia also.
so anyway, i am wondering about the next level up for medication. it is steroidal based and i didn't want to go on it because i heard if taken orally it'll cause all sorts of probs, so instead there is a suppository form you can take also with no side effects, but i don't want to stick things up my *** either (seriously).
so now what? should i start this new medicine or what? where can i get info about it? isn't there any better options?
i stopped going to my doctor about 5 months ago since there is no point until i need to get a new prescription.
