FDA approves LIALDA™ (mesalamine)

FDA has approved a new mesalamine drug (like Pentasa, Asacol) for UC, which is taken only once daily instead of 3 or 4 times .

Good news, hopefully they will approve it later also for Crohn's. Taking meds once daily beats taking them all day

I hope they approve it for crohns too, it would be so much better to take just 1 tab a day.
