 5  ulcerative colitis Water retention, fatigue, quivering sometimes and chills--but Lialda gave me back my life and side effects are minor compared to what I was going through. The cost of Lialda is so prohibitive that without insurance nobody but the rich can afford--meaning the poor will suffer without. That's an ethical decision the company made. F 68 6 years
1000 mg
 5  Inflammatory bowel disease dry throat occasionally, some gas pains, and constipation. I take Miralax regularly to deal with constipation. Lialda has been a miracle drug for me. I was on asacol, mesalasine, bedtime suppositories--tried it all. Lialda gave me immediate relief and I can't remember when I had my last flare. It's wonderful, but expensive. Thank God for insurance. F 60 8 years
 5  Ulcerative ColiColitis Some gas, but its a blessing... Colon was so bad before in last flare I was afraid to try to fart for three months without an accident F 42 8 months

 5  Crohn's No side effects. Lialda has been a miracle drug for me. I began taking it with Imuran but after 6 months was able to go off the Imuran. Since then I have not had any symptoms or flares. F 55 3 years

 3  ulcerative colitis My stool is like "dog food". I am in a flare-up right now, so its been a disaster for a month. I sometimes don't even make it to the bathroom on time. If I go to lunch with a friend, I spend most of my time in the bathroom Its very expensive, but I have been getting samples from my Dr. It may be working, I don't know, I was on Asacol before and things were worse. I have been on this drug for a long time. I have to have a colonoscopy every year, but if keeps me cancer free, its worth it. F 66
4X D
 5  Mild Crohn's Disease None This drug has been a miracle (I hate drugs and don't even take aspirin so this was a tough sell). I had to change my diet (trigger foods mostly elimitated) as well for full relief but I took it for 1.5 years mainly symptom free and decided to go off. 1 month off and my symptoms came back reminding me of the horror I experienced before I was diagnosed. Went back on Lialda and have not experienced a flare in over 2 yrs. All bloodwork, testing, etc comes back normal. Have never felt any side effects but elation and gratitude for giving me my life back. F 28 3.5 years

 5  ulcerative colitis none I have been on different sulfur type medication for many years (diagnosed nearly 20 years ago). this medication is WONDERFUL! I take two pills once a day and I am done. No more 2 pills 3x a day. I have not had any flareups since starting these meds. F 52 4 months
1.2 GM x 2 1X D
 4  collagenous colitis No side effects whatsoever. I love this medication and along with dietary changes all my symptoms were quickly brought under control. My doctor asked me to try Lialda after a couple of years on Asacol (mesalamine). Both worked very well, but Lialda is REALLY expensive. I've benefited from the drug company's discount card, which reduces my cost from hundreds of dollars a month to about $10. F 55 3 years

LIALDA  ( MESALAMINE):  This medication is used to treat a certain bowel disease (ulcerative colitis). It helps to reduce symptoms of ulcerative colitis such as diarrhea, rectal bleeding, and stomach pain. Mesalamine belongs to a class of drugs known as aminosalicylates. It works by decreasing swelling in the colon.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
