No, patients should not stay on this drug indefinitely. My gastro has said in a public forum that IBD patients should not take it longer than 3 months max, due to its potential for causing peripheral neuropathy (nerve damage in the extremities). / Old Hat (nearly 30 yrs with left-sided UC; currently on 3 Colazal daily; seem to be back in remission)
