Asacol® (mesalamine) is a prescription drug that is used for treating ulcerative colitis in adults. Not only can the medication treat flare-ups of ulcerative colitis, but it can also help maintain remission of the condition. Asacol, which comes as delayed-release tablets, is generally taken three times a day.
A few of the side effects that may occur with Asacol tablets include abdominal pain (or stomach pain), a sore throat, and belching. Among the conditions that you should tell your healthcare provider about prior to taking Asacol are pyloric stenosis (narrowing of the outlet of the stomach), kidney disease, and any allergies you may have (including allergies to food, dyes, or preservatives).
