I think Lialda is more commonly prescribed with UC.
My GI wanted me to go on Remicade for a fistula/abscess combo, but the HMO wouldn't let her give it to me and so I am on Lialda.
I've been taking it since yesterday only and so far haven't suffered any side effects.
I think GIs are more likely to prescribe this if you have Crohn's related problems in the rectum because it takes the longest to dissolve???
What about you? Where is your Crohn's active and do you get headaches from the Lialda? I read that that is the most likely side effect.
Diagnosed with typical Crohn's at 16.
Got lucky with Asacol for a year, then even luckier with ten years of relative remission.
Now abscesses and fistulas are having an "atypical" Crohn's party around my junk.
My HMO refused the Remicade and now I could be going on Lialda or sulfa? blah
