Anyone taking Mesalamine tablets in the US?

I'm currently taking Mesacol, which is the commercial name for Mesalamine..
I'll be going to the US soon, does anyone know what Mesalamine tablets are called commercially in the US?

I am currently on Lialda which is another name for mesalamine. I think there are other names also .

I'm also on lialda, which is a mesalamine. There is also Apriso, Asacol, and Pentasa. They're all mesalamines, but different brand names.

I'm on Pentasa and have been on Asacol in the past. Before coming here, I would check to see which version is working for you as each type is a little different. I'd probably check to see about getting Mesacol here if that's what you're on though...

Yeah that's what I was thinking, I'll just get enough Mesacol to last me a while
