I started 9 years ago with 8 pills (800mg) and after a year or so went down to 6 and then only 4 at breakfast. That works for me and it's easy to remember. If I travel and forget to take my pills, there are consequences... I start seeing pink mucus and then blood in the stools.

In the beginning I had headaches when I started taking the medication. With much discussion with my physician we were able to readjust the doses and space out the frequency of taking the medication. Now I have fewer flare ups and less headaches.

Comment:
Taking two tablets 3 times a day is difficult to do when you have a very busy day.It also makes for a very uncomfortable feeling in my stomach. Taking this while also going undergoing breast cancer treatment has been a real challenge! I hope it helps keep the colon cancer away!I have battling this UC for 42 years and am happy to no longer take steriods.
