So it’s been just over a year since we started posting reviews here on the site with the 5 stars you can rate things with, and a super big thanks to all of you who have shared your experiences with different medications, probiotics, diet, and even the 2 ebooks I’ve written for you.

Whether you’re new to or an regular old-timer, I wanted to make sure you all are aware of this truly unique resource that collectively we’ve created for others to read about our experiences.

If you’re interested in reading real deal, the truth and nothing but the truth reviews from other people with ulcerative colitis regarding common ulcerative colitis medications…here are current review pages you can click on to start learning more.  AND, if you have taken any of the medications yourself, please click on the medication and ADD your review too so others can read what your experience was/has been like.

The current medication review pages are:

Probiotic Review Pages:

The SCD Diet Review Page:

(Only 1 so far, but it is by far the most popular probiotic mentioned on the site)



Once again, I want to thank everyone who has take a few moments out of your day to submit your reviews on the things listed above.  These pages are some of the most popular pages on the site, especially for other UC folks who are concerned or nervous about potentially starting new medications that doctors are recommending.  So please continue to submit your reviews moving forward if you’ve taken any of the medications listed.

Also, if you would like to see something new added to the reviews section of the website, please include a comment on this page with the medication you’d like to see reviewed.  I’m always more than happy to add new reviews to the site on any medications (or probiotics) or potentially other types of treatments that you might benefit from reading others comments on.

  1. Prednisalone is a life saver for me. I felt less tired and got my appetite back within days. 30 mg a day for 2 weeks then was told to taper down by 5mg a week. I am currently on 4 tabs a day (20mg) and still good.
    Pentasa took some time to work. Initially my stools were more runny than usual but they seem now to have settled down and they are now helping. 4 tablets a day x 2 . I find taking them with food is far more effective. I take 4 with lunch and 4 with dinner and so far so good.

  2. This is my second post and not sure if this is the right section for this question:
    I was diagnosed with UC about 3 weeks ago. I am on Predisone for another 2 weeks. But, the doctor also wants me on Lialda and Mesalamine (enemas) for life. Is this a normal therapy that most of you were put on at the beginning o f your treatment and then some decided to just stop but others are in fact taking medicine every day of your lives?
    Thanks, David

    1. Hi David,

      In the western world, where the overwhelming majority of the users of this site are located, Yes, the recommendation that you’ve received is just about par for the course after receiving a UC diagnosis with active inflammation (as is almost always the case when diagnosed). And, yes again, you’re right, some people decide to stick with medications for a very long (maybe even forever) time period, while others may move towards other treatment options such as changing diet, taking supplements like probiotics, staying away from your in-laws as much as possible, or other ideas. There’s some specific pages for reviews of people who have taken Lialda that you should read, that might be more on point to your question. That link is here:
