Asacol 400mg tablets have been discontinued. The new Delzicol 400mg is indeed a capsule. But if you
open the capsule, you find a tablet that looks amazingly like Asacol! There are new restrictions on when to take the new Delzicol- one hour before or two hours after a meal.
If it is the same... then why do you need a new prescription. If it is the same as Asacol, then why the new restrictions with regard to meals.
Sounds like a great time to try a switch to once a day products like Lialda.
If and when generic mesalamine comes out, one can evaluate that possibility.
