May I ask what country you are in, and what might limit you from pursuing another doctor? Asacol and Pentasa vs steroids are on opposite sides of the spectrum. Steroids offer an immediate effect, whereas Asacol and Pentasa are known as maintainence drugs. You take these when you're feeling alright and it will help keep you that way. There are a lot of other methods and medications out there, it just sounds like you are with a personality that is unreasonable.
When I first started high school I was in terrible shape, and my doctor put me on mercaptopurine. Worked wonders for me, and then for some reason a new doctor (I had moved to go to college) decided to take me off of it, she didn't want me to keep taking it. I should have gone to a new doctor immediately. I still think about that, because it started me down a cycle of illness I've been fighting ever since. Don't let someone dictate your heatlh to you!!! I know it feels hard when they have letters after their names, but you know your body more than they ever will.
Prayerfully yours, ExJohnson
