    I imagine it had the same poisonous substance as Asacol 400mg that had to be removed and replaced by Delzicol. I believe it was called Patent-Expiration-ol.

    Chewable, yo. I'll leave out all the jokes about not being able to swallow.

    Funny you say that. I had a patient who we switched ask if she could not chew them. I said well, the sticker says they must be chewed first. She said, "I think I'll just swallow."

    I wonder if it has any flavor to the chewable tablets.
