I AM TAKING CELLCEPT AND NEORAL DAILY,AS IMMUNO SUPRESSANTS. WHICH DRUG WOULD YOU RECOMMEND I START TAKING TO CONTROL MY NEW CONDITION OF PROCTITIS,DISTAL TPYE ULCERATIVE COLITIS THAT WOULD NOT INTERFERE WITH THESE EXISTING IMMUNO SUPRESSANTS?
The first-line treatment for proctatitis or distal ulcerative colitis (UC) is typically considered to be rectally administered 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA) preparations. These are given rectally as a suppository or as an enema, which also means their is limited systemic absorption. This can be of potential benefit when your goal is to avoid drug-drug interactions.
Mesalamine is perhaps the most common in this class of drugs, and there are numerous preparations available to choose from. Generally the medication is given rectally once at night before bedtime.
