I've never taken Picolax, but I have had hemmies stop bleeding. Usually they've been troublesome ones, and on one or more bathroom trips I'll have more blood, then it stops bleeding. I think what happens is they get so big they
open and drain, then thrombose themselves so they're no longer a problem. Notably, I had a large external one that did this about
five years ago, and no sign of it since.
And some people do develop intolerance to Mesalamine after taking it for years. If it were me, I'd stop it just to see what happens. If you have no inflammation, you shouldn't need it now anyway.
