I am a little confused. I have been going to one doctor and he gave me the Mesalamine drugs for the treatment of colitis. Now he is retired so I went to different doctor and he told me that it is better to use immunosuppressive like Imuran. Who is right? I was feeling fine while I was using Mesalamine.

Ulcerative colitis is type of disease which can require different treatments depending on its severity, location and presence of possible complications. Both doctors are right because anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive drugs can be used in treatment. But I personally think that although Imuran is very effective it has significant side effects. I think that if you have been OK with Mesalamine you should continue with it.
