Only when I'm flaring or eat too much fat. I think it is one of the possible side effects. But then, without the meds it might be liquid, who knows with this DD?

Colazal used to give me mushy poop. If I lowered my Colazal dose my bms firmed up.

That's the only thing I hate about Colazal. I never know if the mushy stool is from the med or a flare coming on! But, same here - Colazal makes me mushy.

Thanks, I have been freaking out thinking I am going to flare any minute, but maybe just a side effect of the meds.
