I thought that this was just another of the same when I got the advertisement in the mail. My doctor suggested switching because I have never felt that the 5-asa drugs do anything for me. He went to a conference that recommend it as it is released at ph5 instead of ph7. Apparently some peoples systems never get to ph 7 so he thinks this will help.

I think it is helping but I have only been on it for 5 days so I am reserving judgment for a while. Has anyone had any experiences with it yet?

I've been on it for a few months and found it to be as effective as colazol or asacol
