I think it was Keylime who wrote in another thread that she phased in her child's generic Colazal while she still had a supply of the original capsules. That seemed to work in her case to ward off adjustment problems. May be a good strategy for all who switch ... / Old Hat (nearly 30 yrs with left-sided UC ... [etc.])
Yes, this is what I did and so far so good. But I do get worried when I hear others have problems. Her generics are by Mylan and are a darker orange than the name brand. I guess if I notice any changes, I'll request strictly generic, too. She's been a bit gassy but I just started her on probiotics (Culturelle) and think that may be it, but otherwise she's doing well. Even grew an inch and went up a shoe size!!! She is so happy as she is the second shortest in her class!
