I'm on the max doseage of 4 Apriso, but like quincy said, that's a lot lower than the max doseage of 12 Asacol in terms of grams of mesalamine. I plan on asking my GI about
this when I see him next month. Is Apriso's delivery so much more effective that it's ok to take less? I guess I'd start at 3, and if things are ok for a while (once you're off pred as well), then maybe drop to 2 and see what happens.
