I am still trying to figure out what to do about my medication problems (ie affording the medication). Anyway, I feel more safe with BRAND Asacol from Canada than generic. Has anyone used the generic w/o problems? (It seems to be called Generic Mesalamine EC or 5-ASA (Mesalamine Enteric Coated). I was worried about generics because they don't seem to be produced by Tillotts which seems to be a worldwide company that manufactures pills for UC patients. (However, I think Tillotts has been bought by another company called Zeria...it's hard to keep up!)
Anyway, for those of you that get/got brand Asacol: was it manufactured in Canada? It looks like you can get brand Asacol from Canadian pharmacies that is produced in other countries (ie Barbados, Turkey, United Kingdom). Is that safe? Is there a way to guarantee that your purchase of Brand Asacol was manufactured in Canada?
I really appreciate all of your insights and great help. It means so much to us!
Thank you and God Bless :)
