Still mesalamine, though, huh? Just a different way to package it. To me, it sounds like they have developed something to compete with Lialda.
Current Medications:
- Asacol (4 pills, 3x per day)
- Rowasa (1 enema daily, as needed)
- Folic Acid (1 mg, 1x per day)
- Calcium (600 mg, 2x per day)
- Prenatal Vitamin (1x per day)
- Iron (2x per day)

Not unusual, just another pharmaceutical firm attempting to exploit a chronic disease.

This is granular though... I don't understand how it would be dosed. Also, the capsules or tablets we use now have some sort of enteric coating to keep it from disolving too soon...

Oh well, something else to think about! (My brain can't handle much more right now...)
Pan-colitis and GERD diagnosed May 2003

Osteopenia (hip and spine) from prednisone use.  Started Azathioprine because I was steroid dependent.
