Welcome to the party. Most here have tried the Asacol as a starter medicine. You will see, as you view the gazillion posts, that what works for some does not work for all. Keep studying the profiles that are similar to yours and you will gain a whole new education on this disease. Perhaps you will be among the lucky ones that get it under control easily. I wish that for you.
