If you have ulcerative proctitis, you may benefit from Canasa® (mesalamine). This condition is a form of ulcerative colitis that affects just the rectum. Canasa is a prescription medication available the form of a suppository that is inserted rectally.
 
This drug belongs to a group of medications called aminosalicylates. It is thought that Canasa works by inhibiting the production of inflammatory chemicals in the lining of the colon. The medicine decreases the production of prostaglandins and leukotrienes, chemicals that lead to the inflammation caused by ulcerative colitis.
