"Had Crohn's/Colitis for years, been on Asacol for the past 16 years, started with three pills three times daily for almost a year, then 3 tablets twice daily with breakfast and dinner. Still have few flares, but otherwise decent. NO side effects."

"Asacol had no impact on my Crohn's flare-ups at all. Until the biologic medicines came out, I had no relief at all. I suggest starting with mild drug like this but to realize that there are so many more options available today if this does not help."

"I've been taking Asacol since I was 8 years old. So far I like how it works besides the cost, I think that it is a wonderful medication, no side effects for me."

"I was diagnosed with Crohn's at 41 and have been taking this medication since then (approximately 2 years). It has worked perfectly for me and have had no flare ups or side effects. I currently take 2 tablets 3 x a day. I now have my life back."

"My son has Crohn's disease and has done very well on the Asacol. He has no complaints and shows no side effects. He has taken as many as nine tablets per day at one time. I've been very happy with the results, reducing his bouts of diarrhea drastically."
