Thumbs up New med Lialda

Is anyone taking Lialda for ulcerative colitis and diverticulitis? It is a new drug just approved by the FDA in January. My doctor has put me on it rather than to Colazal I was on. It is taken once daily. I have been on it for two weeks. If you are taking it please post any side effects or information.

Re: New med Lialda

i, too, am on Lialda. been taking two full months. my ulcerative colitis had gotten pretty bad (at least to me) and after about a month, i could tell a difference. it's been two months now and i'm definitely much better. my doc said that i could expect to still have flare ups but each time not as bad and that is just how it has been going. not sure if my increased joint pain is from arthritis or could be from the lialda. at this point, i'll live with the joint pain. when i go to doc next month, i'll ask if it could be related.
