Asacol Abdominal Pain Causes and Reviews


Your abdomen extends from below your chest to your groin. Some people call it the stomach, but your abdomen contains many other important organs. Pain in the abdomen can come from any one of them. The pain may start somewhere else, such as your chest. Severe pain doesn't always mean a serious problem. Nor does mild pain mean a problem is not serious.

Call your health care provider if mild pain lasts a week or more or if you have pain with other symptoms. Get medical help immediately if

  • You have abdominal pain that is sudden and sharp
  • You also have pain in your chest, neck or shoulder
  • You're vomiting blood or have blood in your stool
  • Your abdomen is stiff, hard and tender to touch
  • You can't move your bowels, especially if you're also vomiting

Thu, 15 Jan 2009
I am having anxiety or panic attacks, which I've never had before. I'm on the maintenance dose right now, 4 pills per day. I have been on Asacol for five months, and all of a sudden, I am having these panicy side effects. Anyone else having them? Also, I all of a sudden have a terrible indigestion problem. Both these effects have happened since I DECREASED the dose down to 4 pills per day! I know I'm supposed to stay on Asacol for maintenance of remission, but I'm not sure I can live with these particular side effects. Help...
