For those of you on Lialda, does it work as well for you as Asacol did? I'm contemplating asking my doctor about switching, because at the CCFA conference I attended yesterday, I got a card so that I will only pay $25 out-of-pocket after insurance. I hadn't wanted to switch before, b/c with my insurance Lialda is a $40 copay and Asacol is $20. For $5 difference, I'd rather be able to take my meds all in the AM, because as I'm starting to feel better, it's harder and harder to remember my noon and PM doses, especially if I'm eating out or something.
Also, I've heard something along the lines of Lialda being indicated for inducing remission, but not for maintenance. Does anyone know anything about this?
Symptoms began in November 2008, ~4 weeks after giving birth to my son.
Eased for ~3 weeks in December, possibly b/c of probiotic use?
Returned in January 2009 (with a vengeance), diagnosed with pancolitis on January 30.
Currently taking Asacol (400mg 4 pills 3x daily), Rowasa nightly,
40mg 30mg 20mg 15mg 10mg of Prednisone (quick taper), Culturelle probiotic, and Zoloft (25 mg).
