to both of you, songlady & JohnPhx- Delzicol nearly had me running to the surgeon, I swear! Within a week of starting it, I had a major increase in gas, loose stools, bloating, nauseau, & more urgency. I stuck it out for a week, then called my GI in desperation. He switched me to Asacol HD, 2 tabs 2x a day. And within a week of going back to Asacol, I felt markedly better. Currently, I'm feeling really good- I try to space my Asacol HD doses every 12 hours, which seems to really help the med work best. I strongly urge you both to call your GI's asap- it's got to be the Delzicol, that stuff is toxic!
