HI! I started out on 2 Lialda/day and am now on 4/day plus Canasa suppositories. I noticed that the bleeding stopped, decrease to 2 bm's /day and no urgency within a few weeks and formed bms within a month. I increased, per doctor orders, when my symptoms re-surfaced through flares.
Where is your colitis located? Have you talked with your doctor about
all of your continued bleeding, cramping and pain? It may be that he would have some further suggestions for you to get into remission. Let us know!
