Welcome to Healing Well, statusquo! I am so sorry that you are suffering because of your problems. Exactly what has your doctor diagnosed you with? Did he/she say you have an inflammatory bowel disease? If so which one, ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease? I know somethimes the doctor cannot tell until they do further testing.
There are other medications to treat inflammatory bowel disease besides Asacol. Has the GI doctor offered any other possible treatment plans to get you on the road to recovery?
We have to forums here for inflammatory bowel diseases - on for ulcerative colitis and one for Crohn's. If your doctor has mentioned one of these as a possibility, post a question there as those members are really expert in IBD!
