Sorry to post again, but I want to know if you all think switching from Delzicol to Lialda would be pointless. I think it probably would be, but I was willing to try it anyway (my old, really bad GI told me to do this) until I got the pills and they are HUGE. I do not do well with huge horse pills. I can get them down if I absolutely have to, but I honestly would rather take the 12 normal sized Delzicol pills than 4 gigantic pills that make me gag.
I have seen Old Hat write here many times about Colazal (sp?) helping more with left-sided colitis and that's where I recently had inflammation while I had just come off of prednisone, but my GI didn't give me that. He said Lialda is what helps that left-sided area. Again, this doctor said a lot of stuff that was totally incorrect and I don't trust him.
Anyway, does anyone think it's even worth it at this point for me to switch to Lialda? I have no idea why this would work at this stage where I'm seriously considering surgery. Thanks.
