Pregnancy and asacol

Post by Sophie88 » Thu Aug 30, 2018 10:57 am

I am ready to try for a baby and my question is regarding asacol. I’m on the maximum dose (4.8 a day) and know it is better to stay well but also better to not be on high doses of meds if not needed. I am considering halving the dose and then trying for a baby, hopefully if I stay well. Has anyone done this? What are your views on it? Also how long Would I need to wait between halving dose and trying for a baby? So many questions! Obv I have spoken to gp and consultant who are always brilliant. They say I could try to half but also that it is best to stay well and I can stay on maximum dose if needed... help! 😂😂
