    Pentasa for Ulcerative colitis

    I always use Pentasa Xtend 2g if I have a colitis attack. The attending physician thinks I could take the Pentasa constantly. During a push I take 2x2g. Pentasa Xtend, in the resting phase, the dosage should be reduced to 1x2g. Because of the detected side effects, I put the Pentasa but completely off after a boost. Side effects that occur with me are: depression, slackness, tiredness, joint pain.

    Side effects: Joint pain; Fatigue

    Pentasa for Ulcerative colitis

    Suffering for 7 years from this inscrutable disease. I started with Claversalzäpfchen. Soon no longer tolerated. Then came Salofalkzäpfchen, that did not work. From the darmaligen general then Salofalkeinläufe get. Initially slightly better, during a spurt and later incompatibility, can not hold, terrible burning as well as the suppositories, increased urge to run to the toilet. Then Clversal came in the form of white granules, three times a day. The dose was insufficient to bring the colitis to a daily level. Soon after, Pentasa Xtend 2g followed three times a day. Soon, improvement was always associated with side effects (increased bowel activity and laxity, as well as nausea and lack of apetite). An attempt was made to reduce the dose to one or two doses per day. Since I have the dose again erhöt and am a gastroenterologist, told him about it. As a result, I was advised not to change anything in the amount of intake without consulting. In addition, I got prescribed Salofalk 1g rectal foam. Most attempts to hold the foam have failed. I could only hold it in a few cases when the thrust was just in a weaker chamfer, but by no means subsided. The relapses are the worst from lunchtime (1-3 times per hour to the toilet) Only when the last grain of Pentasa Xtend is eliminated, the whole calms down. I do not dare then in the evening to take the third dose, but must after getting up to the toilet, which is also the case during the resting phase. I also suffer from a heart disease that is permanently treated with medication. And here comes another problem, during the push that lasts for weeks makes my heart mitlerweile to work properly. Hair loss, poor liver values, not at any price!

    Side effects: Hair loss; Fatigue; Nausea
