Papillon1004 I too question why you are stopping the Asacol. I personally believe and have learned a very hard lesson on what not taking meds with this disease can do to a person. There is no cure for our disease. Even when you think all is well, Crohns is always in there doing its damage on a microscopic level. I ended up having to have emergency surgery due to complete obstruction because I didn't think I needed meds either. I too am maintained solely on Asacol and it has kept me in remission for the past 5 years. Please do not ignore your Crohns. I think the Asacol has been keeping you in remission, get back on it and stay on it so that you don't end up getting sicker, and then having to go on even more heavier meds or wind up in the operating room.
