I have a question. My nephew also has UC, and is currently in a flare. He has pancolitis and is only on asacol. He has been treated with pred in the past, and this time his doctor wants to steer clear of the steriods. The doctor raised his doseage of asacol from 12 a day to 16 a day. He has been on this doseage for a month, and it is working. He is going into remission.
What concerns me is the high doseage. I read in these posts, that 12 is the max. I tried to do a search on the net, but could not find it written anywhere that 12 is the max. Could someone please show me where it says this. I am concerned for my nephew. Thanks in advance
