hey everyone so i was on Lialda 4 tabs a day for almost a year and last week i had severe abdominal pain and nausea and vomiting, i had to go to ER, where my GI diagnosed pancreatitis due to Lialda. I don;t drink or dnt have any gallstones so he said lialda might have caused this. it has this rare side effect. I was also taking canasa suppositories which has mesalamine as an active ingredient. i was in hospital for about 1 week as my pancreatic enzymes were high. it was over 10,000 when i was admitted to ER (and normal limits are less than 400) when i was discharged it was still higher than normal. but he said it'll go down in a week. So he said to stop taking both of them and just continue my Uceris. I have been taking Uceris for about 5 months now. I think its helping my UC. Did anyone else have pancreatitis due to Lialda?
