Asacol -

Hi there -

Looking for any feedback on Asacol and how it works with anyone taking it right now. The Dr recommended my partner start taking it but we don't know too much about it, and I'm looking to see if anyone is experiencing side effects of any kind, and also if it seems worth taking.

Hi there, I'm on 3,200mg of Asacol and haven't suffered any side effects. The only time I had a problem was when I was given a generic form rather than Asacol itself.
Personally I'd say anything is worth a try.

Good luck

Hye Stephie,

According to my BNF book which has every medicine available on the NHS to only side effect possible from asacol is blood clotting abnormalities and that is only in rare cases so I don't think you have to worry about that.

Hello there, I have been on asacol for ten years and I haven't had any bad side effects. But I will say that depending on how bad your partners condition is your partner might need other treatments. good luck to you both.
