Who should not take Asacol?

Asacol is a prescription drug, and you should only take it if your doctor has prescribed it to you. People who are allergic to aspirin, mesalamine, or other salicylates should not take Asacol. You should also tell your doctor of any food, dye, or preservative allergies before taking the drug. Alcohol and tobacco may interact badly with the drug. If you have preexisting problems with your kidney, liver, or stomach, you should be cautious about taking Asacol. If you have a heart condition, you should check with your doctor before taking Asacol. There have been few studies on age, pregnancy, or breastfeeding to determine whether or not Asacol affects people differently according to these variables, but you should tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant.
