The side effects are almost not worth the overall outcome of the treatment with this medicine.

I take 2 pills, twice daily. Easy to take. Have not had 1 flair up in 3 1/2 years. Cost, well right now it is $5.00 for a 90 day supply.

I just got diagnosed with UC and I have tried Asacol and Lialda, the headaches were too bad with both and they didn't work. With in 5 days this medicine started working and I have had no side effects or flare ups. WONDERFUL!!!

I have had Crohn's for 18 years, I was always sick, I started taking Colazal 4 years ago and I have been perfect ever since. It is also safe to take while pregant, I just had a perfect baby girl. I only get a headache every once in a while. The medicine, literally saved my life.

Comment from: Lily2, 19-24 on Treatment for 2-5 years (Patient) Published: March 13

I have tried many drugs for UC including Remicade and Humira(had BAD reactions to both). Colazal is the only drug where I have had extreme daytime somnolence and insomnia. Three pills three times are day are also difficult for me to remember. Other than those, this is a very effective drug.

Had colitis for 35 years on & off. Periods of flareups was significantly increasing as I got older. After Knocking out the last flareup with steroids - have been taking 8 of these a day for 3 years. No more flareups & colonoscopy shows "normal" colon.

Comment from: Sonja, 25-34 on Treatment for 2-5 years (Patient) Published: October 19

I find it to be great. I liked that it went straight to the colon and not going through the blood stream like Asacol. The price for me as dropped since they came out with a generic. I was paying $50 every 3 months and now im paying $10! I thought the pharmacy had made a mistake, I have not seen a difference in effectiveness from Name brand to generic.
