Benefits of Pentasa

If you have ulcerative colitis, you may benefit from Pentasa® (mesalamine). As a type of aminosalicylate, this medicine works by inhibiting the production of inflammatory chemicals in the lining of the colon. As a result, Pentasa decreases the production of certain chemicals that lead to the inflammation of ulcerative colitis.
 
The controlled-release capsules dissolve slowly over time, which allows the medication to be released throughout the gastrointestinal tract.
 
According to clinical studies, Pentasa benefits included fewer symptoms of ulcerative colitis (including fever, trips to the toilet, bleeding, and pain) when compared to those not taking the medication.
