Mesalamine Drug Information

Mesalamine is an ulcerative colitis drug that comes in many forms, such as capsule, tablets, suppositories, and enemas. Some forms of the drug are taken just once a day, while others are taken four times daily. Your particular dosing guidelines will depend on the form of mesalamine being used, your current medications, and whether you have certain other medical conditions.
 
Regardless of the form being used, safety information on mesalamine should be reviewed with your healthcare provider prior to beginning treatment so that you are aware of all the risks. For example, your healthcare provider needs to know if you have any of the following conditions:
 
  • A pyloric stricture (a narrowing of the outlet of the stomach)
  • Kidney disease, including kidney failure (renal failure)
  • Liver disease, such as liver failure, cirrhosis, or hepatitis.
