i started the asacol about a week ago didnt seem to bother me,but when i started absorbing more of the meds. i noticed a bad headache,body aches like the flu,and some dizzyness. well the other morning i woke up went to the bathroom and as i was sitting on the toilet i got real hot and dizzy,and nauseated with some sweating. i tried to get up and go to the livingroom and sit down but i blackedout and hit my glass coffee table. my daughter yelled at me and i heard her so i had to have been out for like a sec. but i busted my chin it needed stitches. well i stopped the ascol and told my pharmacist about what happened he toldme to stop taking it. my question is do you think i might be sensitive to mesalimine drugs?

Yes I do. Not all allergic reactions come in the form of hives. There are varying degrees of sensitivities and allergic reactions. To me, it definately sounds like you can't take the mesalamines. Talk to your GI about this and if you want to try another medication, I suggest you give Colazal a go.

I had the same flu reactions to all mesalamine medications. I also tried Colazal and after raising the dose - same reactions. Very frustrating because these are great, safer medications to use for UC.
