I have a section on the right hand side of the large bowel where there is mild inflammation which showed up on a capsule endoscopy. I have no symptoms right now and am God willing in remission.
My doctor has said that he wants to switch me to 1gram of Pentasa x 2 a day instead of the Asacol which has worked so well for me. His reason is that Pentasa releases quicker and will probably treat the right hand side better than the Asacol would.
What do people suggest? Shall I go with it? Shall do that and a suppository evey few nights? Or stick with the Asacol?
Many thanks for your advice.
Diagnosis Oct 07 and then Aug 08: Inditerminate Patchy Colitis. Also suffer from Peptic Ulcers could be related to Asacol. Current Medication: 500mg Asacol Suppositories, 800mg Asacol Tablets x 2 a day.
