Hang in there sicklygirl. Eventually you will fall into remission, it's just a matter of time. Just don't be afraid to try more advanced treatments. They seem to have much better overall success rates than asacol and the dreaded (gasp!) prednisone. After my colonoscopy, the doctor is pretty sure that he will start me on Remicade. And I was always one who was reluctant to try the scary experimental stuff.
I too have had full asacol pills in the toilet too. I often wonder what the point of taking them is, if they go straight into the john. As if we don't spend enough $$ on medicine, we like to see it working at least, or at least being metabolized.
