Pentasa 500 Mg Capsules

Not everyone with ulcerative colitis will be prescribed the same dosage of Pentasa® (mesalamine). There are two strengths of Pentasa capsules available (500 mg and 250 mg). Your daily dosage will depend on whether you are taking any other medications and whether you have certain other medical conditions.
 
However, there are some general dosing guidelines for this drug. For example, if you have a mild or moderately active case of ulcerative colitis, you will likely start at four Pentasa 250 mg capsules or two Pentasa 500 mg capsules four times daily. As always, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
