I have been taking 800 mg of Asacol 3 times a day over 5 years form my Crohns, and it has been well controlled. Now I find out my insurane will not cover it anymore. My doctor would like to put me on Lialda but that will cost me about $1600 a year, so we have decided to try Balsalazide 750 mg 3 tablets 3 times a day. I have read horror stories about this drug.
