Hey, there! What is your diagnosis? I hope I didn't worry you with my profile and the increase in meds. I had a very stressful July and I flared in late July and went on 4 Lialda for that.Then had a sinus infection for which I took an antibiotic that made me have worse D than when I was diagnosed with pancolits and ended up on prednisone on 9/16/07. I would like to think it was the antibiotic and menstrual changes, although my GI does not share that same viewpoint.
I really like the Lialda and how it is once a day and it worked so quickly and I love that I can make it through the entire day at work with no urgency or D; just a little time in the bathroom upon getting up. However, after that first week of Lialda, I had no more no cramping or blood (unless it is that time of month/flare) and regular bm's (soft, but not D). I hope you do well on it, too!! Keep us posted!!
