Does Lialda deplete you out of vitamin B?

Does Lialda deplete you out of vitamin B?

Not deplete but...: Lialda does not "deplete" vitamins but may interfere with absorption of folic acid. A variety of supplements may help colitis.
I advise you take a B-complex or multivitamin that has L-5-methylfolate, the active form of folate, rather than folic acid. O.N.E. Multivitamin by Pure Encapsulations is an excellent choice.
