I just saw my doctor last week Tuesday and he upped my asacol to 12 but told me I could go back to 6 once my flare is under control. However, he didn't mention the process to which to do this. So I'm going to call his office tomorrow to find out if it's one per week or one per month or what. If I find out an answer, I'll post and let you know.
Diagnosed with UC January 2007
Responding well to Asacol 2 pills 3 times per day
Asacol upped to 12 per day until the flare is under control
Canasa added nightly until the flare is under control
