Hi dmacell- For Lialda, you can go up to four 1.2 mg/day--the dose I'm on. I started at 2 and increased up to 4. Perhaps your doc would increase the Lialda before going on the pred? I would ask and see, it sure would be better than pred!
Pancolitis diagnosed 5/07 and started 2 Lialda/day;
increased to 4 Lialda/day since 8/01/07
