Lialda as an Ulcerative Colitis Treatment:
I was diagnosed with moderate UC in late 2007. I was put on Lialda, took it for over a year…this was before they had released the (recent) study saying that it keeps folks in remission and is perfectly safe to do so. I fully believe that Lialda cured my Ulcerative Colitis because I stayed on it for over a year, everyday. I stopped the meds and haven’t had a flare up since. Maybe I’m lucky, maybe not. All I know is that it worked for me. It stopped my initial problems within a week, and I was so relieved I just kept taking them religiously, and that’s my story. I hope it works for other folks the same way. It probably won’t work as easily for folks with severe UC, like I said, mine was moderate to begin with.
Ulcerative Colitis Symptoms Before and After:
Symptoms before: lots of blooddy stools, constant having to go, unable to pass gas, abdominal pain, embarrassment, not able to go anywhere without worrying about it, not able to enjoy the same foods and beer as before.
Colitis Medications I Tried Before and Medications/Supplements I’m taking now?
Lialda was the only thing I tried, it cured me, I’m convinced. It has been over a year since I stopped the meds and no flare ups!
