Of course, this must be done with the advice of your doctor. You may not need it for the time being as you may be in remission. Or you may be able to take a reduced dose for maintenance. With your doctor's advice, you can always take it again later on. In the meantime, you will be able to see if it really helped you. My group insurance contracted with a new provider that does not have Asacol in their formulary. My doctor switched me to Avialda which is pretty close to Asacol. I have not been taking it long enough to see if it is just as effective.
