If you responded well to asacol a Doc will probably try you on mesalamine enemas for remission (aka rowasa etc). Same chemical, just more of it. At one point when I had no insurance I got a doc to write a script
and paid for the stuff full price. Expensive but if it works you may be able to stop and go back to pills after a while.
Though I should add enemas work best if the disease is confined to the lower part of the colon.
