I'm not on Lialda but whenever I have to switch medications or increase them, I always get the headaches too. For me, the headaches usually only last until my body becomes accustomed to the change. Have you tried taking tylonel for your headaches or Excedrin? Though Excedrin should only be used sparingly since it has aspirin and caffeine in it.

I've been on Lialda since March and no headaches associated with upping the dosages.  Could it be something else?

I have taken about everything else and lialda seems to work the best although I needed prednisone to get me in remission the lialda is keeping me there so far.

Lialda has been a lifesaver for me. I've had no problems with the drug. I take 4 every morning. It lifted the awful fatigue! Sorry that you get headaches.

I have been on Lialda for about 6 weeks now and just moved from 3 to 4 per day.  I can say I have no side-effects...but am unsure if it is working on its own as I started 40 pred and rowasa at the same time.  Either way, I am starting to go into remission, and hopefully I can stop the pred and the lialda will do the work. Good luck with the Lialda...I hope it works for you
