Another Ulcerative Colitis Story with a Medication Question regarding Predfoam:
I was officially diagnosed last week with proctitis and ulcerative colitis. The surgeon then gave me a prescription for Predfoam and Pentasa. I had used Predfoam twice before which had worked quite well as it helped control the bleeding which is the main problem. The problem now is that Predfoam is currently unavailable here in Ireland due to authorization, don’t ask me why a professor would prescribe something that is currently unavailable but there you go! Anyhow the pharmacy gave me another alternative called Predsol which apparently is the same strength as Predfoam but got a shock when i read the list of side effects that it can cause e.g Depression, muscle deterioration, moonface, suicidal thoughts etc mad i know so i decided against using it as also it would cover a much wider area that is perfectly healthy, while the Predfoam for me goes straight to the area. So if anyone out there knows where i could get the Predfoam I’d really appreciate it! Is it still available in the UK? I am also getting married in four and a half weeks. My parents are currently in The canaries so they might track it down.
Thankfully my UC isn’t very bad so I’m OK at the mo but also need it asap.
