Problems With Pentasa

Pentasa® (mesalamine) is a drug commonly used in the treatment of ulcerative colitis. Most people do not have any problems with it; however, side effects and other adverse reactions are possible. For example, Pentasa could damage the liver, which would lead to problems like dark urine and upper-right stomach pain.
 
In clinical trials, the most common side effects seen with this drug included diarrhea and nausea. Fortunately, if such problems occur, they are usually mild and easily treated. Regardless, if you experience anything during treatment that "just does not seem right," contact your healthcare provider.
