    IMy current condition is ulcerative colitis, after some time of not wanting to go onto any medicine I came to a point where I had no choice. It was either Canasa once a day or Asacol twice a day. So took the Canasa, works great however it seems when stop for about week or week in half everything comes back, just wish could go little longer than week half without taking medicine.
