4 asacol 3x's per day is 4.8 grams of mesalamine so two tabs @ 2.4 grams were definately not enough.
I have been in remission for about
5 months using Asacol @ 8 pills per day (I use rowasa's every three days) and also just switched (2 days ago) to Lialda for convenience as well, but today I notice some blood on one of my stools. My doc also started me on 2 Lialda per day but that is also not enough to equal the asacol dosage I was on...I think three lialda a day would be better (3.6 grams vs the 3.2 of asacol) for me and that's what I'm going to do...I hope and pray it works.
BTW, what were your symptoms that you were getting to indicate you were out of remission?
