Hey everyone, I have been taking Delzicol for about
3 weeks now. I feel fine and it's working great. I can't speak for everyone, but it seems the same as regular 400mg Asacol, if not better. I was taking 3600mg of regular Asacol, now I am taking 2400mg of Delzicol. I really don't understand why someone posted the taste is horrible....there is no taste. It's just a coating that dissolves in water in like a minute. I found that if you have the pills in your mouth and swish some water around the pills before you swallow they are less "sticky" and the pills will go down easy.
My insurance covers Delzicol so for me it works. I just wanted to let you guys know, that so far I have had a normal positive experience with it. Let me know if you have any questions. I'm going to post this in my other thread about
Delzicol in case there are some worried people out there with the recent switcharoo.
oh yea..the hour before food thing is not that bad either. I take it when I get up in the morning, wash up and by the time I have some breakfast it's close to an hour past the time I took the pills. I then take it when I get home from work around 4 which is more than the recommended 2 hours after lunch. I then eat dinner and take my last dosage before bed, about
4-5 hours after my last dinner meal. It kind of works in a normal schedule. Take it 1 hour before a meal or 2 hours after a meal. I have to admit, I have cheated and taken it with a meal and my stomach did not explode or anything crazy.
