I have a mild to moderate case of proctitis. The doctor prescribed both asacol tablets and rowasa ememas. If they are the same thing, wouldn't it be harmful to take both at the same time?
Treatment of proctitis depends on the cause.
If your proctitis was caused by an inflammatory bowel disease such as Chron's disease treatment may involve anti-inflammatory medications such as mesalamine (Asacol & Rowasa).
The Asacol tabets would target the inflammation in the bowel and the Rowasa enema would target the inflammation in the rectum.
It is not harmful to take both at the same time and this combination is commonly prescribed.
Hope this is helpful.
All the best.
