Munchkindd: Sorry to hear you've had the same problems.
Hekela: What time of day do you take your Asacol? I usually take mine at approx. 8 a.m., 4 p.m., and midnight. I also usually go to bed around midnight.
Also, I've always wondered...does laying down immediately after taking meds impact their absorption? In addition to my last Asacol dose, I usually go back to bed after taking my morning meds (Asacol, Prednisone, Zoloft, vitamins) on the weekends. No way I'm getting up at 8 a.m. on a Saturday!
