I am a Crohnie who does well on just Asacol and have been using it for years now. I tried to stop it after my last resection and ended up getting sick again. If she is doing well on just this minor med after she gets off the Pred, I would stick to just keeping her on that if you can. I am trying to avoid the stronger meds if I can too. Sorry about
the high co-pays, thats one reason I have a HMO, much cheaper. Good luck!
