Has anyone been on Lialda? Any major side effects?

I was just prescribed Lialda to take instead of my asacol but I have 2 more bottles of asacol, so I am still taken the asacol till its gone so I didnt waste money.

But when I start the Lialda should I be aware of any side-effect? Ive heard side-effect rangeing from hair loss to heading back into flares so I am a little hesitant to take it.

Anyone have any experience with these pills?

Oh and, My doctor told me to take 4pills every morning instead of 12 pills of asacol.
