Sulfasalazine Drug Information

If you have ulcerative colitis, your healthcare provider may recommend treatment with sulfasalazine (Azulfidine®). This prescription drug comes in tablet form and is taken three to six times a day. It is available as both a brand-name and generic medication. Common side effects include nausea, headache, and loss of appetite.
 
Most people are able to take sulfasalazine without any problems, but it isn't right for everyone. Before starting treatment, you will need to provide your healthcare provider with a list of your current medications (including nonprescription drugs) and any other medical conditions you may have. If you have any allergies, your healthcare provider will need this information as well.
