I'm a 66 year old male who has suffered with moderate to (mostly) severe UC for 13 years. I have used these and other physician ordered drugs with unsatisfactory results and even Merkel Cell cancer while taking 6 Mercaptopurine to suppress my immune system.

I am UC patient for the last one year. It was under control for the last5 months. But relapsed since may 2013 and since then I have taken I have been taking rowasa 3gms per day and whysolane 30 mg for days then 20 mg for few days and 10 mg and then 5 soon as the wasp lone is reduced I again have to take whysolane.....currently 40 mg per day.neither the bleeding stopped nor the urgency for the visit to washroom.moreover I have to go to washroom for at least 10 times per day. Recently doctor precribed tab azoron 50 mg per day. But with one dose of azoron I got severe nousia and after suffering from nousia I got vomiting and got relief.......may I know is there any substitute of azoran tab. I am 62 years old

I also try to relax and have a BM as late in the evening as possible and use the Rowasa immediately before going to bed. This works well for me.
