I have been on this medicine for 5 weeks. At first I didn't think it was working so I stopped for three days and found out it had helped. I hope within the next month I will see a big difference.

After suffering for a month trying enemas,foams and creams my doctor finally prescribed Canasa. I'm allergic to aspirin side effects being severe hives.

Was diagnosed with proctitis a couple of weeks ago after a really bad flare up. I took this straight for a week and found that it helped, then all of the sudden it began to give me really bad side effects.

This medication worked great for me but I had a hard time inserting the suppository due to disabilies. I finally found a way to use them by using a vaginal applicator for yeast infections. I don't know why someone doesn't invent an applicator for rectal supp. All in all the medicine worked wonders.

I've been using this for about two years now and it works great for me. I take lialda and fiber daily which has controlled my flare ups a lot more than Assacol but I do still get very mild flare ups and the canasa 1000mg clears it up right away. it does give me gas in the mornings and I'm bloated all day but ill take that any day over pain and living in the bathroom.
