I'm on Salofalk, so here's some info:

Salofalk is an anti-inflammatory (5-aminosalicylic acid, 5-ASA) or mesalamine, and is used to treat mild to moderate ulcerative colitis and Crohns disease.  There are different brands of 5-ASA used to treat different places in the digestive tract, anywhere from the mouth to the anus.  For this reason, some brands are used to treat only ulcerative colitis and some for Crohns disease and ulcerative colitis.

To me....?  Take whatever works for you.  I've tried others over the years, and found that Salofalk was the only one that works for me.  I also take Prednisone (5mg) on a maintenance dose.
