Colazal Drug Class

Colazal® (balsalazide disodium) is a prescription drug commonly used in the treatment of ulcerative colitis, a type of inflammatory bowel disease. It comes in capsule form and is generally taken three times a day. Colazal is approved for mild-to-moderately active cases of ulcerative colitis, and can be used in people who are at least five years old.
 
Colazal belongs to the class of drugs called aminosalicylates. These medications are believed to work by inhibiting the production of prostaglandins and leukotrienes in the colon, chemicals that lead to inflammation.
