General Information on Dosing With Rowasa

Some considerations for people taking Rowasa include:
 
  • Rowasa comes in a liquid form that is used as an enema. Each enema comes in its own enema bottle.
     
  • Rowasa is used once a day, preferably at bedtime. It is best if you can retain the Rowasa liquid in your bowel for about eight hours (overnight).
     
  • Each bottle of Rowasa suspension should be shaken well just before use.
     
  • Rowasa will work best if your bowel is empty before each use.
     
  • Be sure your healthcare provider explains exactly how to use the Rowasa enema. Be aware that the Rowasa liquid will stain fabrics, flooring, painted surfaces, marble, granite, vinyl, and enamel.
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or Rowasa dosing in general, please talk with your healthcare provider, nurse, or pharmacist.
