How Should Pentasa Be Stored?

Pentasa should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. The capsules should be stored in an airtight container.
 
Keep this and all medications out of the reach of children.
 

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your Pentasa as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.

  • Pentasa 250 mg controlled-release
