Asacol Hypersensitivity Causes and Reviews

An allergy is a reaction by your immune system to something that does not bother most other people. People who have allergies often are sensitive to more than one thing. Substances that often cause reactions are

  • Pollen
  • Dust mites
  • Mold spores
  • Pet dander
  • Food
  • Insect stings
  • Medicines

Normally, your immune system fights germs. It is your body's defense system. In most allergic reactions, however, it is responding to a false alarm. Genes and the environment probably both play a role.

Allergies can cause a variety of symptoms such as a runny nose, sneezing, itching, rashes, swelling, or asthma. Allergies can range from minor to severe. Anaphylaxis is a severe reaction that can be life-threatening. Doctors use skin and blood tests to diagnose allergies. Treatments include medicines, allergy shots, and avoiding the substances that cause the reactions.

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...
