I have also been on Colazal for a little over a year now. I went from 6 pills to 10, then to 12. After 12, I started to lose some of my hair and my poop was really mushy. Not quite diarrhea, but close. I just lowered to 9 a day and the hair loss has slowed considerably. The poop is still mushy though. I posted a question about the consistency of the poo and colazal and it seems to be a pretty standard response. Over 6 a day and you get mush. I don't know if these are the problems you are having, but I just saw my GI and he tells me there will be a better drug out in July that is far more effective at getting the meds to the colon than asacal or colazal, so therefore you can take a lot less of it. I am going to be waiting for that!!!
