ulcerative colitis triggers

I was recently diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and have a few questions about what types of things are known to cause flare ups.

I have a lot of back pain and used to take a lot of ibuprofen/advil, etc, but the doc told me that this type of medication would trigger a flare up and that tylenol was the best for people with UC.

My question is this:

Will any of my back pain meds such as hydrocodone or oxycodone (with tylenol) trigger any type of UC flare up?

also, I am a college student. what about taking adderall to study. I almost always do but I was wondering if anyone else had any experience with this?? thought i'd check before i try.

I am taking 3 colazal capsules 3 times daily, if that makes any difference. Thanks,

Re: ulcerative colitis triggers

don't know about US drugs (I am from UK). Is the back pain from the UC, if it is in your lower back it might be. Your treatment for that might clear it and then there will be no need for other drugs.

The pain I get is in my lower left front area of my tummy - thats where the UC affects me.
