Re: Husband diagnosed with Colitis
My Opinion does not mean much, I am not a doctor but Asacol did not make me feel good either, it made my stomach upset and it made me get hot flashes. I switched to Lialda and I tolerate it much better. It has allowed me to become more regular and it is a 24 hr slow release so you only take it in the morning with breakfast.
I will tell you, I still get a little upset in the morning after breakfast, and especially after I go but this is a stomach/ colon illness so your have to expect some set backs.
Also my doctor made a point to tell me that this is a slow moving healing and that it is not a straight line, I am tired of it after 4 months I could not imagine the people who lived with this for years. Everyday I am concerned and it wears on me, and I am not used to that because I was a very confidant guy. So what I can tell you is that help your husband deal with this physical change by helping him deal with it mentally, because it takes its toll.
