I felt terrible the entire time taking Asacol, and then I couldn't fill the prescript
ion for awhile and actually started feeling MUCH better off it, so I just stopped taking it. I've always felt Asacol did not agree with me and actually made my symptoms worse with diarrhea and bleeding. Not to mention I ALWAYS passed completely whole Asacol in my stool so maybe that had something to do with it.
