Delzicol DR

Available by prescription only, Delzicol® (mesalamine) is used to treat ulcerative colitis in adults. It comes in the form of a capsule and is a replacement for Asacol® 400 mg tablets, which are no longer available. Delzicol is available in one strength: Delzicol 400 mg delayed-release (DR) capsules. The capsules contain the medication in a special resin that does not dissolve in the highly acidic stomach, but instead in the much less acidic intestines.  
 
This medicine is taken three times a day. Your dosage will depend on the severity of your condition, other medications you are taking, and various other factors. As a type of aminosalicylate, Delzicol works by inhibiting the production of inflammatory chemicals in the lining of the colon.
