Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis 3 months ago. Prednisolone and Pentasa initially and former now tapered off. Ongoing Pentasa 4g pd. I seem to have a lot of the side effects listed in the notes that come with the drug packs. Worst is the tiredness and dizzyness and intermittent heart flutter in region of upper colon. My joints ache too. I'm assuming (hoping) it's the drug and not some other associated condition. UC consultant doesn't seem that interested beyond ensuring that the colon inflammation and bleeding is controlled so have made a GP appointment to discuss and will not doubt be sent for blood tests. If it is the Pentasa causing these side effects, is it something that wears off the longer one takes the drug ot just something I have to live with?
