Welcome to the forum. I was on Colozal for about a year and it did not keep my UC under control.  Sounds like they maybe should try something different, there are so many different 5 ASA drugs, believe me I tried them all. Eventually none of them keep me in remission or help even taking the predinisone at the same time.  I am now taking Imuran which they just recently changed me to which is different than the 5 asa drugs. Hopefullly there is one that will help you.  I have had UC for 21 years and still have all my colon thank god....the 5 asa drugs are good, they just need to fins the one that tailors to your needs and helps you.There is pentasa, sulfasalazin, asacol the list goes on, you may want to talk to your doc and tell him how things are going.  Hope you find something that helps and you get better soon.

 Moderate to severe left sided colitis diagnosed in 1989, UC at times had been throughout the whole entire colon. Have been on ever 5 ASA drug known to man, none of which kept me in remission. Currently taking Imuran 75 mg working up to 100mg eventually if it works. Been on Prednisone since January tapering off, currently on 10mg a day. zanax(anxiety) thanks to all the steroids seraquil 100mg, protonix for GERD and probotics and fish oil
