I don't believe so but I would ask my pharmacist if I were you.
I think yes.
"Before you take Asacol, tell your doctor if you have kidney or liver disease, a stomach condition called pyloric stenosis, a heart condition such as congestive heart failure, or a history of allergy to sulfasalazine (Azulfidine)."
