The pills are very hard to swallow. Perhaps if they came in a capsule I would be able to keep more down.

Aloe Vera Juice will control Ulcerative Colitis, can be purchased at walmart, meijers, less than $8.00 a gallon. This is a fact!!! When it's under control, Do Not quit drinking the juice or it will come back... it is also good for stomach acid and stomach ulcers... Believe it or not it does work...

Unfortunately I experienced an early stage of Steven Johnsons syndrome,one of the rare side effects. It took a month of treatment to have the severe allergic reaction and since I had eaten shrimp when the allergy developed the SJ was overlooked. I started the treatment again only to have SJ symptoms show after only one week with azulfidine. My advice if you need to take this drug is to keep beware of any rash or sign. Even when you aren't allergic you can develop a sulfa allergy.
