After a year on colazal and taking 9 pills a day of it, they switched me to lialda x4/day. My diseases is low in my sigmoid colon as far as we know. I was looking forward to taking a few pills a day. However, after a few days, I got diarrhea. After about a month of that I decided it was the lialda and went back to colazal-:) Sigh.... I hope it works for you. I really wanted it to work for me. Swallowing 9 pills of colazal a day isn't easy. I have to take other meds too. Too many pills to even count but at least they are all once a day. Good luck with it!!
