How should I store Lialda?

You should store Lialda (mesalamine), a medicine for ulcerative colitis, at room temperature, which is no warmer than 77 degrees Fahrenheit, and in a dry place. (Your pills will still be potent if they briefly become as warm as 86 degrees Fahrenheit.)

Don't store your pills in the bathroom, as the heat and humidity there are too high. As with all medicines, keep the tablets in the original container and out of children's sight and reach.
