Discussions that mention asacol

Bowel Disorders board

Hello Yugokid,

I experienced the same type of symtoms that continued for a few days....Went to the doctor and they drew blood to figure out if there was inflammation within my body. The labs concluded that there was and so after a series of questions from the gastrointerologist, he decided to do a colonoscopy to look further into the situation. I indeed had colitis, which affected my colon. I was put on Asacol after first trying cortosteriod supossitories. The asacol seems to help with this illness and its symtoms.

If I were you I would seek out medical attention through a gastrointerolist.:)
