Rowasa Uses

How Does Rowasa Work?

Rowasa belongs to a group of medications called aminosalicylates. It is thought that the drug works by inhibiting the production of inflammatory chemicals in the lining of the colon. Rowasa decreases the production of prostaglandins and leukotrienes, chemicals that lead to the inflammation of ulcerative colitis.
 

Rowasa Use in Children
