I can tell you that the azulfidine I am taking is not the enteric coated. Mine are round, gold in color and has G500 printed on it, for Greenstone (maker) and 500 for the mg. I have never been on the enteric coated ones. Which ones were you on when first prescribed azulfidine? I don't believe the enteric coated would work for me, I was on Asacol for 2 years with no luck at all, I believe they were enteric coated and that's why they were not dissolving in my gut.
