As the list of medications used to treat ulcerative colitis is changing and mainly growing over time, please feel free to email me with any updates to medications (or brand/generic names) that might be used in your local area.

What is very helpful is for reviews to be submitted on the review pages listed above as well. By having real stories and patient reviews of the different medical treatment options that UC’ers are using and sharing, it becomes easier for the future generations of ulcerative colitis folks to make decisions.

please send a quick email for any ideas on how to improve this page to
