A week before Thanksgiving I was prescribed Lialda 4x 1.2g tablets a day. The following day I took the second dose and started noticing sharpe pains and gas building up. I did'nt think much of it relating to the medication but stoped it anyways after the second dose, and thought maybe I got the flue.
The following three days I was in bed, fever, chills, confusion, no apitite, neasua, diherriah, adombinal pain, headache. I know I was getting dehydrated as my lips became chap and water was no longer appealing to me.
I went from being partially in remission to full blown 20+ x a day blood/ bowl movements, and I had no blood in the past week before.
Took me a good two weeks to recover. Now again, I just assumned i was laid out with the flue. Then I took Lialda in half the dose just in case yesterday. And again, I am down and out with the same thing. Blood now when there was none, 20 momvents + a day.
I thought this medication is to help, not make worse.
AS and all the wonders with it.
