...Then switched to the Shire Generic and while it did not pull me out of the flare it had the same outside texture as the Zydus pill.
Hm, that seems odd that Shire generic would have the Zydus coating/texture. I figured the Shire Generic would be the same coating as brand Lialda. Did the Shire Generic have the 711 label on it?
My local pharmacy will be getting the Shire Generic tomorrow so if it is similar to the Zydus then I'll just have to try it for a few days and see what happens.
