Ulcerative Colitis
I am a 27 years old female and am currently being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. My doctor has prescribed me PENTASA (oral form) for my treatment but this medication does not suit me (it constipates me). I wanted to know if there is any other treatment available other than PENTASA? (My doctor told me that it is the reference for UC treatment and it did not have another solution)
