I didn't have much hair loss on Asacol.
My brother says that before I took Asacol, my memory was fine.
Since taking it in my teens, I can't remember many events from my childhood.
He likes to joke and tell people I took too many drugs and so my memory is shot.
Still, Asacol is the most mild of meds. If your doc prescribed this as a first drug for you, consider yourself lucky! I know I was! After a year of Asacol, I didn't need a med for 10 years.
Diagnosed with typical Crohn's at 16.
Got lucky with Asacol for a year, then even luckier with ten years of relative remission.
Now abscesses and fistulas are having an "atypical" Crohn's party around my junk.
My HMO refused the Remicade and now I could be going on Lialda or sulfa? blah
