I was diagnosed with non specific colitis back in October after having mild rectal bleeding. I was put on Asacol 6 pills a day and am still on that dose with a view to lowering it in April (after 6 months). I went into "remission" immediately after taking these tables - probably after about
4 days and have been that way since. My bowel movements have gone down from 3 or 4 a day at once stage to usually once a day.
My main concern now is that my urine often looks dark, this morning it looked brown! Could this be the Asacol or de-hydration or both? Can anyone help please?
My stools are normal although, well formed but a little light in colour. I am also having problems putting on weight no matter how much I eat although I am not losing weight.
I have told my GI about both of these problems but he doesn't seem to be concerned at all.
