Asacol (Mesalamine) is an anti-inflammatory drug which acts on the lining of the gut to reduce inflammation. It is used to treat ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. All medicines have side effects but not everyone experiences them. It is hard to predict how long the diarrhea will last. It could go away as your body adjusts to the medicine or it may persist. If it persists then see your doctor.
