Lialda Medication Information

Lialda® (mesalamine) is a drug used to treat mild-to-moderate ulcerative colitis. It belongs to a group of medications called aminosalicylates, and works by inhibiting the production of certain inflammatory chemicals in the lining of the colon.
 
This prescription medicine comes in the form of special delayed-release tablets, which have a coating that prevents the tablets from dissolving until they reach the colon. Lialda is typically taken once a day with a meal.
 
Although the drug is generally well tolerated, it is not suitable for everyone. Before taking Lialda, make sure your healthcare provider has up-to-date information on your medical history and a list of your current medications. In particular, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you have certain health problems, such as pyloric stenosis or problems with your liver or kidneys.
