Is Balsalazide and Lialda same?
Yes equivalent, same family of drugs.
Thank you for asking
I read your question and i understand your concern. Lialda is a mesalamine t aminosalicylate derivative used in inflammatory bowels. No doubt its quite expensive. Aprizo , balsalazine and delzicol are all 5 aminosalicylate derivatives and work the same. So if balsalazine costs you less, i would recommend you should switch to iy , but let your doctor decide.
Medically and pharmacologically, there is no difference between the two.
I hope it helps. Take good care of yourself and your wife and dont forget to close the discussion please.
My wife just picked up her prescription for Balsalazide 750mg at the pharmacy.
The label on the container states that she should take three capsules by mouth three times daily.
Does this appear excessive to you or is it a normal practice to take nine capsules daily?
Thank you XXXXXXX XXXX
Dose is right
Thnk you for getting back to me
Yes the prescription is right. 3 tablets in a single dose (2.25 gm) with 3 doses (6.75gm) in a day is a recommended dose fo balsalazide in inflammatory bowel disease.
I hope it helps.
