UC medications LIALDA(TM) and PENTASA(R) (mesalamines). Please see Important Safety Information included below.

UC patients generally report more stress/depression compared to other diseases

The findings illustrate that UC takes a heavy psychological toll, which is further brought to light when comparing UC patient responses to the survey responses of people with three other chronic health conditions -- migraines, rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and asthma, who were also surveyed as part of UC: NORMAL.

Specific worries most commonly mentioned by UC patients were developing colon cancer, having their colon removed, requiring surgery and public fecal incontinence.

The survey found that 32 percent of UC patients are not currently taking medication to treat their UC. For patients who are taking medications, compliance is an issue. Of those UC patients taking aminosalicylates (5-ASAs), the first-line therapy and most commonly prescribed class of medication for UC, only about half (54 percent) reported that they have taken all of their 5-ASA medications in the past seven days.
