I take 3 of the 750mg capsules 3 times a day for my ulcerative colitis and have seen that as long as I make sure to take them at the same times every day, then it works very well and flare ups are few. The capsules are easy to swallow and the medication itself has been very easy on my stomach.

Colazal (balsalazide): Cheaper than some other medicines. It's my wonder drug.

Colazal (balsalazide): This medicine really helped me get in remission about 6 years ago. I'm still taking it as a maintenance drug- but I have been flaring up for the past 2 years while taking it. Prednisone has been my savior as far as the flaring up. Next step...Remicade. We will see how it goes!

Colazal (balsalazide): There is new generic version of Colazal now. I was wondering if anyone has used it and found any problems with it vs the brand name drug.
