I'm sure Geniegirl is a spammer.......she's giving the wrong information to boot!
For your information..........
There is NO SULFA in Lialda or Asacol or any other 5ASA orals except sulfasalazine (azulfadine).
There is a metabisulfite as preservative in the mesalamine enemas and the suppositories that some may have a reaction to. There is also a sulfa-free mesalamine enema available in the US.
Again...Geniegirl has given misinformation...so don't take it for gospel. DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH or ask LOTS of questions instead of ASSuming.
*Heather* I give suggestions, do with them what you will.
