i just had one of those emergency bm's at a gas station, missed the toilet with the initial blast....anyway, on the floor in the pile was a lialda pill, still looked about the same as when i took it, the cover was open, but looked like all the medicine was still in it.  I can't say how many times i have seen lialda pills like that in the tolilet.  I wonder if i am having trouble absorbing the medicine.  like i said, i have seen it several times......anyone else ever had this problem.  since i'm flaring, i hate seeing my meds in the stool.

So sorry about your incident! I have heard that undigested pill can be an issue with Lialda and Asacol. Not everyone has the proper PH balance to break it down. Definitely tell your doctor.

I have heard that the newer Apriso (also timed release mesalamine) can work better for people with the PH issue as it breaks down differently.

I keep asking my son if he is seeing any pill...he say no...
