I found out I have pouchitis and the Dr wants me to use Melamine (Canasa) suppositories to cure the pouchitis.  Has anyone used this and was it successful? 

Thank You

Original Post

When I had my jpouch, I did use canasa suppositories, however it was for cuffitis.  They did help as soon as I could get over the uncomfortable feeling of a suppository. 

Funky, mesalamine is often used for cuffitis, but it's an unusual choice for pouchitis. Is there a reason your doctor might be avoiding the standard antibiotic treatment?

I h ave never heard of treating pouchitis with canasa. Are you certain you are not dealing with inflammation of the cuff and doctor called it pouchitis?
