I am a HUGE fan of Colazide (known as Colazal in the US). This 5-ASA based on Balsalazide
made a massive difference for me. I was taking Salofalk and things were just getting worse by the day.
Went on holiday to Thailand, ran out of Salofalk. Still had Colazide, so was taking Colazide without the Salofalk. Things started to get noticably better after a week or so. Got back to Australia, thought it was just because I had been on holiday. Got more Salofalk and things started to get worse again.
Have since dumped the Salofalk and am just taking Colazide and I believe it really helps.
Colazide is great because it only releases the 5-ASA (mesalazine) once it makes it into the large intestine, unlike many of the other 5-ASA drugs.
