Apriso Drug Information
The prescription drug Apriso™ (mesalamine) is used for the treatment of ulcerative colitis. It comes in an extended-release capsule, which means the medication only needs to be taken once a day. This medicine works by inhibiting the production of certain chemicals that are associated with the inflammation caused by ulcerative colitis.
Prior to beginning treatment with Apriso, the drug's safety information should be reviewed with your healthcare provider. Interactions with medications are a concern, so your healthcare provider needs to know about any other medicines, vitamins, and supplements you are taking. Antacids, for example, can react with Apriso and lessen its effectiveness.
