  • Discontinuing Asacol very gradually. After 2 weeks I have gone from 400 mg to 200 mg. loss of energy; reaction to a pasta dinner; some anxiety. Have to switch to lialda if not better since Asacol in my dose is no longer being made. My doctor wants me to stop both an d see how I do. The reduction in Asacol has had the above symptoms.. Would they be expected with withdrawal from Asacol?
