is lialda my best option?  I have not really tried anything else...just suppositories...when i was first diagnosed.  Pred seems to be the only thing that stops the 6mp meds have bad side effects.  are they more successful?

I didn't have much luck with Lialda, but everyone is different. I'd say it is definitely worth trying, although it is more of a maintenance drug (like Asacol) and may not actually stop a flare. Prednisone works, but you should be working with your DR. to find a regimen that will keep you flare-free. 6MP is definitely an option; Imuran has worked wonders for me (similar drugs.)
