I've been on Colazal (and now the generic of it) since 2004. It put me in remission for 3 1/2 years. Colazal is simply a maintenance drug. It is targeted to the large intestine and is meant to calm ulcers and/or inflammation. So between my 1st Colonoscopy & my 2nd one, nothing had changed - which was a good thing, meaning the Colazal was doing what it was supposed to do.
That doesn't mean I haven't had a flare or been sick with Crohn's symptoms while on the Colazal. But I will most always stay on this drug for maintenance purposes.
Diagnosed in October, 2004 at age 32.
