My doctor gave me some samples of Lialda to try, as it is delayed release and only has to be taken in the AM versus three times a day like my colazal. I have been pretty stable on colazal, it took me and has kept me in what I guess I would consider remission (ie not the same as before UC but able to work and play).
Does anyone have any advice or pointers on switching from Colazal to Lialda? I don't know much but he told me they are both anti-inflammatories, so to be honest, I wouldn't be expecting any radical results, better or worse, but wanted to check with you guys for input to get my mind straight before I contemplate any med change.
What do I have to gain?
