The only side affects that I can pinpoint to the Asacol, for me, were (are) hair loss and dry mouth. The rest of the potential side effects they warn of with Asacol are all symptoms with Crohns -- so who knows?! Good luck with finding the drug (or supplements!) that will work for you :)
30 year old wifey and mom to 3 little girls, 2 dogs, and 2 ratties and working full-time outside of the home...nap anyone?
Suffered with symptoms for 12 years, dx Crohn's-Colitis 11/2007. Taking Asacol,
Omeprazol, Rowasa, Bentyl. Flaring off and on and trying to avoid steriods. I've started a regimen of supplements from my naturopath to see how that helps: RF Plus (rebuilds GI mucosa), Similase (digestive enzyme), Cortine (supports adrenal function), Pregnenalone (hormone, helps memory and energy), and Vitamin B injections.
