I didn't want to take my meds either, thought I would be fine without them. That ended very ugly with an emergency resection due to complete obstruction. Now I am a good girl and always take my meds. I am maintained on only Asacol and you with Pentasa. These are the mildest meds out there. Get back on them and when you see the doc do be honest with him. Your not stupid, we just get feeling so much better on the meds sometimes, that we think "oh okay, I am fine now", but little did we know they were what was causing us to feel better. We always have to remember that we have a chronic and incurable disease. This isn't like an infection we can take antibiotics for and get better and forget about it. I am a firm believer on taking maintainence meds at ALL times. I learned the hard way what happens when you don't. Take this as a lesson learned. Good luck and I hope you get feeling better soon.
