I was on colozal for the last couple months... My doc switched me to lialda two days agao. not sure if it was a coincidence or not... but first day on it... symptoms are gone. Almost total remission except for consistency of bm's... they are still loose. But no urgency.. 2 bathroom trips in mornign and done. life has been great last two days. I also have been doing spinach diet for almost a month so maybe that finally kicked in... had been getting progressively better with that diet ( thanks cfromutah ) also had been living gluten free for almost 40 days, not sure what worked or if it was a combo... but hey. I love it.
