Hi Honeys bunny--I have been on Lialda since March 07 and have had GREAT results! I have had no side effects, other than having the urgency stop, the trips to the bathroom decreasing from 18 or more times a day to 2-4 with formed bms. Also, no more bleeding. I have had two flares, one brought on by stress/worry and the other from antibiotics after a sinus infection. I am very, very thankful for Lialda. I am allergic to the sulfa-type meds and also can't even think how I would remember to take several pills several times a day! I would suggest you to do a search for 'Lialda' and you'll find lots of posts on it and I don't recall any bad posts regarding Lialda!
