I was wondering if anyone is taking Lialda with an Anti-Tnf and if this is a safe thing to do?

Lialda is the same drug as Asacol, just the dosing schedule is different. Most of us here who are on Remicade are also on Asacol or some other form of 5-ASA such as Colazal. It's safe and most GI's recommend it because the 5-ASA's have been shown to have some effect on lowering the incidence of colon cancer over the long term.

Thanks for the info Judy, I have been on asacol in the past but got off of it thinking it might be triggering flare ups. So I am now going to try Lialda

Why did you think it was triggering flareups? Marguerite
