What dosage of Lialda are you on and did you decrease it after 6 weeks? I assume you have already quit the Canasa. You need to take 4 Lialda per day and take Canasa 2-3 times a week, both forever. None of these meds are cures. If you cut back too much your symptoms will return, guaranteed. Both are extremely safe meds in most all cases. You may find enemas are more helpful than suppositories. In any event, if your lower dose of Lialda wasn't good enough then it is not going to work to increase it for six weeks, add Canasa for two weeks, and then turn around and go back on the same dose of Lialda that caused you to have to increase meds in the first place. You have already been there, done that.
