I can't take Lialda or Asacol.  I got really sick on both.  My first symptom was itching, then a rash, then my neck hurt, the next day my wrists, then my knees,  then I got such horrible pain in my stomach.  It hurt so bad I was going to go to the ER.  I thought I had toxic megacolon.  I posted on here and heard this was a side effect.  I also vomited.  This all happened within a week of taking both meds.  I stopped taking them and within a day or two I was fine.  I hope you have better luck with Lialda.  Alot of people use it and have good results.  Good Luck!

Those are typical symptoms of intolerance to mesalamines - I can't take any of them.  Each day gets worse and feels like the flu!
