Canasa Indications

The primary use (indication) for Canasa® (mesalamine) is to treat a certain type of inflammatory bowel disease called ulcerative proctitis. This is similar to ulcerative colitis; however, it only affects the rectum. The medicine comes in the form of a suppository and is inserted into the rectum once a day.
So when is the use of Canasa indicated? Possible signs of ulcerative proctitis include stomach pain, diarrhea, and rectal bleeding. However, these symptoms are common to other conditions as well, so your healthcare provider will need to conduct certain tests and perform an exam in order to make an ulcerative proctitis diagnosis.
