I have a mesalamine question. On Saturday at the Guts & Glory walk I was given a Lialda brochure and am interested (I'm currently on Asacol). My question is what are the differences between the various mesalamines? (Asacol, Pentasa, Lialda, Colazal)
I thought I understood that they released at different points in the intestines but are they the same, just different brand names?
Thanks for your help.
p.s. the CCFA walk turn out was huge! I think the number was at least 400 more than last year.
