Taking Nexium while on colitis meds

I need help! I was diagnosed with Ulcerative colitis in Dec. I am currently taking Apriso and it really seems to help. Since I've been having stomach problems I'm now back on Nexium. I took Nexium before I was diagnosed with the colitis, but the GI decided that since there is a chance of getting diarrhea from Nexium, I went off it. I've only been taking Nexium for about 2 weeks but am starting to once again go "loose". Does anyone out there take colitis meds and also take a Proton Pump Inhibitor? Please respond.......

Re: Taking Nexium while on colitis meds

I take ranitidine and am on oral and rectal 5ASA meds.

If you have ulcerative colitis, you should also be on a rectal retention med....I would suggest Rowasa.

Some PPI meds can definitely cause looser stool. Are you on any fibre supplements and probiotics?

It's all a matter of perspective!
