what was your reaction? Some of us can tolerate certain 5-ASA products better than others. To be sure, the other meds you mention have side effects, too. From what I understand, they're the 2nd line meds if the 5-ASA (or mesalamine) drugs don't work. Good luck!

Colazal 3X3/day, Lialda upped to 4/day, Phosphatidylcholine 4 (420 mg capsules) once/day
