I didn't respond to Asacol and many people find it actually makes their symptoms worse. I did better on the older ASA, azulfadine (Sulfasalazine).
Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis spring 1999.
Maintenance dose sulfasalazine.
Probiotics, l-glutamine and fish oil caps. George's aloe vera juice. Oregano oil antibiotic, antiviral, antifungal. Long-term remission with only minor blips.
