My daughter has been using this medication for 3 weeks now. Tonight she went to the bathroom and her poop was totally white. I don't see this as a side effect listed. Has this happened to anyone else?  Should I call her Dr?

The rowasa will turn your poop whitish. Call the doc to make sure but it does that to me. Good luck!

Initial Symptoms SEP 2007.
Bleeding from somewhere I shouldn't be for a year and a half...ehh it will probably go away.

Prednisone - Hey this stuff kinda works.
Rowasa - Fun little way to end the day.
Asacol: Not so much!

It was TOTALLY white and then a few hours later it was back to brown with white streaks! I'm just thankful it is working!!
