I took Dipentum in the mid-to-late 1990s. It was helpful for controlling inflammation, but not diarrhea. When Colazal came on the market in 2002-03, my gastro commented that it was more likely to control D than Dipentum ever did. That has proven true in my case, TG! I hope this info helps you. / Old Hat (nearly 30 yrs with left-sided UC; currently on 3 original Colazal daily for maintenance of remission)
