Your first c-scope? What convinced you to finally do it? They really aren't that bad, it is just the prep that gets to me.
I took Asacol, but decided I was allergic to mesalamine, and stopped taking it. To make a long story short, my doc and I decided that I wasn't allergic to mesalamine, so now I'm taking Lialda. Both drugs did a decent job controlling my UC, the advantage of Lialda is only taking it once a day, and only 2 pills...Asacol I was doing 4 pills 3x/day.
