Discussions that mention asacol

Bowel Disorders board


I too have U.C since I was 17 Im now 37 and been down the predisone path off and on from 17 to 27. Did you quit smoking recently? I am a smoker and each time I quit I would go out of remission and had to take prednisone which after 10 years I got osteonecrosis in my hips from taking the predisone. I too will never take it again. I take Asacol to stay in remission which works great as long as I keep smoking. Havent been out of remission in 7 years and havent quit smoking either. Theres also Rowasa which Ive had to use in the past that works without side affects. Dont give up on having a baby, I have a healthy 13 year old daughter which I had between flareups at 24, good luck........
