The VA switched me to balsalazide from anusol several years ago. I see no difference. Both work equally well to control my UC. I am a 70 yr. old male.

I do not have bowel movements for days - 3 to 4 days. I have been taking this for over 10 years (8/day)and have had this problem since the start. I've tried everything - metamucil, laxatives, increased fiber and nothing. I do take several other prescription drugs so I'm not sure if it could be something else or a combination. When I do finally go it is not strained but the time between movements is very frustrating. Can this be doing it and does anyone else have this problem?

Who is the manufactor of Colazal?

The manufacturer of the brand name Colazal is Salix Pharmaceuticals. This product is also available generically, and those manufacturers currently includes Apotex pharmaceuticals, Roxane laboratories and Mylan pharmaceuticals. To find out which manufacturer is available in your area, it is a good idea to call your local pharmacies to find out which manufacturer they order from.

I have been on Colazal for many years (20?) and it has helped keep my ulcerative colitis in remission.

I have not had any issues with this medication. I have had good results with control of my systems. The only thing I have experienced on occasion is hard bowel movements.
