I've been on Lialda about
a month now. Still in a flare. Remi stopped working for me after the first two infusions, the 3rd just never kicked in. Which really sucked as after the first two worked their miracle I was in heaven. Just added Entorcort EC to the med mix, I take a gazillion pills in the morning, but then I don't have to sweat pills for the rest of the day. Unless I was on a rather high dose of Prednisone I haven't been able to maintain a remission since diagnosis. GI says if I don't get some relief now that he's added the Entocort he wants to 'scope me and see what's going on exactly. Ugh.
I do know that bad as thing are, when I was on Colazal I was taken off it for a couple of weeks and things got so much worse, so I guess these drugs are helping somewhat if not getting me into a full remission.
