What If I Take an Overdose of Canasa?

An overdose with Canasa is unlikely to cause serious side effects, especially since very little of the drug is absorbed into the bloodstream. However, if you happen to take an overdose, seek immediate medical attention.

How Should It Be Stored?

Canasa should be stored at room temperature (below 77 degrees Fahrenheit), away from moisture and heat. Higher temperatures may cause the suppositories to melt.
Keep Canasa and all medications out of the reach of children.

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose of Canasa?

If you do not use your suppository as scheduled, take your missed dose the next evening. Do not take a double dose.


Canasa suppositories are available in one strength --- Canasa 1000 mg suppositories.

Generic Canasa

Currently, there is no generic Canasa licensed for sale (see Generic Canasa).
