Suggest treatment for ulcerative colitis
Lialda is MESALAMINE
Good evening....or by now Good morning.
Lialda is a drug which has been shown to induce and maintain UC in remission. As far as I know it is not offered yet as a generic drug and has good statistical evidence for efficacy. You haven't said whether or not you have kidney problems or any allergies because people who are allergic to aspirin or aspirin products may experience problems.
My experience with Lialda in my patients is that they are successful with it. A couple of people did complain of allergic types of reactions but only 1 had to stop because reactions were too severe. The other continued with the medication and the symptoms eventually subsided.
I'm afraid that I have no experience with the 2nd drug you mentioned. I also did a search for it on the internet and could not find anything by that name as a treatment for UC. There is a drug called Alinia that treats diarrhea but this is in the setting of certain parasitic infections and would not be useful for treatment any diarrhea associated with UC.
Perhaps you can look up this 2nd medication and get another spelling for it?
