I have a colitis condition, Sulfazine does appear to help but I always seem to have my sleep interrupted. Is this common? Michael

Hello Michae Sunday. I researched your question and found that insomnia might be a rare cause of taking Sufazine. I couldn't find a percentage as to how many users it effects. You might talk to your doctor and see if she/he can prescribe you a med to help to you get a sound nights sleep. Best of wishes,pledge

I take a lot of antidepresents, but they do not put you to sleep. I alternate( 2) or melotonin or benadryl, there are health food idea that tey swarre by valienern and those others don't see to be effective to me, But a lost of people so got for the natural cures. IF your lucky, perhaps it will work for you . Good luck.

Michael: I have had ulcerative colitis for many years with flareups from time to time. When I started with a new gastro doctor he increased my dosage of Sulfazine to 500 mg.x 3 which I take 3 times daily. I have not had a flareup in several years (thank goodness) and my sleep has not been poor due to the meds. May I suggest you buy Melatonin 3 mg. (over the counter) as it's a natural substance found in our bodies and for years was used to prevent jet lag. A friend who is a nurse, recommended I use it when I cannot sleep and it does help me fall asleep, which is my problem from time to time. I had been taking tylenol PM, which has something in it not great to take, but Melatonin is safe. Good luck. Sylvia
