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...
