Yoga, that was a great answer, I will remember that one.
Sorry to hear your jumping medications around. Have been on the Asacol for quite some time now. Was declared back in 2004 and havebeen on it ever since. Seems to be pretty stable in my case but I know everyones different. Good luck and hopefully it will work out well for you.
Be patient, it takes some trial and error with meds to get the right ones for you. I immediately backed off of milk and found I was lactose intolerant. Avoid seeded foods. Carry a change of clothes in your vehicle and learn where all the restrooms are located. Reduce the stress in your life. Put yourself first if you normally don't do that. Don't be afraid to go get a second opinion. I travelled to the University hospital to make sure I was on the right track. I avoid many foods, peanut butter, sugar, nuts, milk products and could go on and on.
