What is Lialda?
Lialda (mealamine) is in a class of anti-inflammatory medications known as aminosalicylates. It is used to treat ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease in adults. Ulcerative colitis is an inflammatory bowel disease that can cause swelling and small ulcers in the lining of the large intestine and rectum. Crohn’s disease produces similar symptoms and can become life-threatening.
Symptoms include abdominal pain, diarrhea and bleeding and can flare up and worsen over time. By reducing inflammation, Lialda can reduce symptoms and cause the condition to go into remission.
Lialda is taken once daily by mouth.
What does Simplefill Provide?
Simplefill provides access to Lialda patient assistance programs that can help take the worry out of paying for your Lialda prescription. Ulcerative colitis can be aggravated by stress, which can have a negative impact on treatment outcomes.
Simplefill’s mission is to help relieve that stress and ensure that you don’t go without the Lialda prescription you need. We will evaluate your specific situation and search all available U.S.-based patient assistance programs to find you the most help possible with the cost of your Lialda prescription.
How does Lialda Work?
The form of mesalamine in Lialda, 5-ASA (5-aminosalicylic acid), is released slowly in the intestine and reduces inflammation in the colon, though the exact mechanism through which that happens is not fully understood. It’s likely that 5-ASA blocks the action of certain enzymes involved in the production of prostaglandins, which cause inflammation.
