Does anyone know of any information (either anecdotal or research)about taking half doses of BOTH Asacol and Azulfidine (i.e., 3 tabs Asacol in AM and 2 tabs Azulfidine in PM each day)?  I seem to get good results and I can find no published risks or contraindications about this.  I will be talking to my Doc about this but he may toss me out of the office! confused

Well, they are both 5-ASA compound drugs. I take 400 mg x 4 pills, 3 times a day - the maximum dose. I can't imagine a doctor caring about taking a total of 5 pills a day that are 5-ASAs..not when I take 12. If it works for you, I hope it keeps up and that you have no problems. Good Luck,
Claudia

I think the Asacol and the Asulfadine dissolve in different parts of the gut, and while the are both ASA's, they do not share all ingredients. Thanks to all.
