What is your Maintenance dose?

I researched online and it said that maintenance dose for lialda is 2 tablets per day. What is the maintenance dose for Mesalamine 4mg rectal? I have both medicine and currently taking 2 lialda tablets per day as maintenance dose. I am wondering if i can temporarily switch to Mesalamine 4mg rectal as maintenance after i use up my lialda. I don't want to waste the rectal 4mg because they are expensive.

Coming late sorry. I wouldnt not switch the meds since you are in remission. We always take a risk when we stop something that works, not worth it for a couple of bottles imo.
