These are listed in order of cost per day after current discounts.
At least where I researched it.
750mg Capsule Per Day 9
0.375g Capsule Er 24h Per Day 4
1.2g Tablet Dr Per Day 2 to 4
400mg Capsule Dr Per Day 6
800mg Tablet Dr Per Day 3
500mg Capsule Per Day 8
250mg Capsule Er Per Day 16
But you are comparing 4g of Pentasa to 2.4g of DELZICOL & ASACOL - I have not heard that more grams of Pentasa is required.
Also, Pentasa may be better for far right colon because it releases early, and Lialda may be better for sigmoid colon because it releases later. If the cheaper drug works, fine. But if the flare persists and you are not using the best drug for the specific problem areas, then that may be false economy.
