Very effective BUT randomly manufactured & EXPENSIVE even with insurance. Lialda made things worse & generic colazal caused mouth sores.

I have had UC for almost 14 years. I took Asacol for 13 of those years. About a year ago my doctor suggested the generic of Colozal. It is cheaper so that was nice. I only take it at bedtime, 3 pills. I did the same with the asacol. If I notice slight flare ups I was told I could take more so I do that occasionally. About once a year I seem to have a flare up that I can't control so I use the Rowasa enemas for 3 weeks...

Comment from: 19-24 Female 5 to less than 10 years Patient Published: June 03

I take this medicine 1 pill in the morning and two at night. This is a pretty low dose I have heard, but it works well. I have been on this for 7 years and I am 20 years old. I haven't had any flare ups, or bad side effects. The only ones are: I bruise easily, some insomnia, and maybe a bit of joint pain. I have recently in the past year had hair loss on the top of my scalp. This could be from stress too. It doesn't regulate the abdominal pail or frequent bowel movements when I get stressed, but that is something that I need to control by relaxing and not freaking out.

I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis less than a year ago. I live a very busy life, as I am 22 and I go to college full time and I work full time. The medicine started working in less than 5 days and I felt relieved. However, too many pills to take in one day....remembering for me is very hard. If I do forget, I know it, because my stomach will act up the next day. Overall, very impressed with this medicine. Now if I could only remember to take it!

I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis less than a year ago. I live a very busy life, as I am 22 and I go to college full time and I work full time. The medicine started working in less than 5 days and I felt relieved. However, too many pills to take in one day....remembering for me is very hard. If I do forget, I know it, because my stomach will act up the next day. Overall, very impressed with this medicine. Now if I could only remember to take it!

was diagnosed with UC at the age of 13 (29 years ago), just started taking Colazal aprox. 6 months ago. Seems to be working as expected, however, now have extremely chapped lips.

This medicine worked for me and my inflammatory bowel disease. I wish I didn't have to take so many pills a day but other than that, I don't think I have had any ill effects from it. Kind of rare for me.

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.

I have only been on this medication for about a week. Still loose stools and nausea is a concern, don't want to eat. Other than that I know it will take time to get into my system. I take 3 pills a day for colitis
