I think it is strange for him to give you Lialda when it is so similar to Asacol but it's probably not a bad idea just to check and see if it truly caused the reaction you had. Maybe it was a fluke. If I were you, I would ask about Colazal, some who can't tolerate mesalamine, do well on Colazal. Give Lialda a try, if you have a reaction, ask about Colazal or rectal medications. Have you ever tried rectals?
