I have been on every other medication but they haven't helped much so my doctor is trying the newly approved Uceris which is an enteric coated med that works in the intestinal tract. He took part in the study and had good luck with his patients. I had previously been on Entocort but that only covers the first 1/3 to half of your colon. Uceris is supposed to coat the entire colon.
As far as I know, Uceris is not enteric coated. Unlike regular Budesonide, which is immediately released in the colon, Uceris is an extended release drug. Also, it supposedly has little if any absorption in the blood. I have been taking it now with great success for over 7 weeks. (I don't suffer from UC, my problem is Collagenous Colitis.)
