That's neat! I didn't know about the Canadian version, but it makes sense as there are some others that have different names b/c of the country. Lialda has really worked well for me--from 15+ bathroom trips with urgency, blood and diahrea to 2-4 trips with no urgency, well formed stools and little or no blood. I have had a few flares since starting in March, but they have been dealt with by increasing the Lialda and then a round of prednisone and now using Canasa supposititories as needed. Keep us posted!!

Hey Alabamababs,

 

How long did it take for you to notice a difference in how you felt when you started taking the Lialda.  I have been on it for 4 days and I am noticing some D (I was pretty sick last week with either a flare or a bug of some sort).  Not sure if I am in the middle of a flare up still or if I am having a reaction to the meds.  It’s nothing awful right now but just disappointing as I was hoping it would all stop once I started the meds.

I think it is great to just have to take it once a day, I prefer it over way the others.

Thanks

Carmen
