There is not much I can really suggest except drink plenty of water. I ve never had side effects from asacol, and that is new to me that it can give you head aces. Have you tried changing diet to ease the cramps. I tried combination eating and that really has helped. I have been in no abdominal pain for 3 months. Nock on wood. Sorry this is all I can do for you.
