The active ingredient in both Asacol HD and Asacol is mesalamine, and it is identical in each drug aside from the dose. The 800mg has a similar eudragit coating as the 400mg, but due to the tablet size the release profiles of the coating are not identical to the release profiles of the 400mg tablet.
