Our daughter is finally starting her enemas. However, not sure how accurate it will be since she will continue her cortifoam as well. We are so hoping this will keep it in check... she has suffered for a long time. I will be anxious to see the results others have had.

The suppositories were helpful for me to prevent spasms. I didn't notice a whole lot of difference with the mesalamine enemas. I was also using a bunch of other meds at the time, but I used mesalamine suppositories twice a day, and without them I was much worse off.
