Specializes in Internal Medicine - Gastroenterology

Site of release: Both are in the class of mesalamines - antiinflammatory agents for inflammatory bowel disease. Pentasa tends to release higher up in the small intestine due to its release mechanism while Lialda tends to release solely in the colon.
