My doc wanted me to switch to HD, but I turned him down because lower dose asacol worked just fine.
If he switches my meds, I have to get checked by him again, so to me it was another way for him to get me in sooner. He's been wanting to see me a lot more than I want to see him. I finally put a stop to the follow up visits. Haven't seen him in several months and doing fine on lower dose Asacol.
