From this study (1 week ago):
I have been taking asacol Hd for over a half month now. I am finding my interractions with people are more and more hostile. Intense anger. General population is stupid. Lack of patience with individuals I find difficult anyway. Is it the asacol Hd? Sure would like to have regular asacol back. Delzicol is worthless.
