Had mucous, bleeding, gas and too many trips to the bathroom. After colonscopy, I was diagnosed with localized inflammation of the lower colon.

I've had ulcerative proctitis for 10 years. And this drug does work but but the side effects are bad. I have dizzyness and very nauseated from the canasa.

Comment:
I got diagnosed with UC a few months back. At first it worked right away. I was absolutely amazed at not having any symptoms or sudden urges to go to the bathroom. I took a month's supply and ran out before I had my follow-up appointment. My symptoms came back and was put back on Canasa a couple of weeks later. It worked for about a week. I ran into a stressful situation and the symptoms came ... Show Full Comment
