Sulfasalazine Delayed Release Side Effects

Common Sulfasalazine Delayed-Release Side Effects

Sulfasalazine delayed-release has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials, in which the side effects of a group of people taking the drug are documented and compared to another group not taking the medicine. As a result, it is possible to see what side effects occur, how often they appear, and how they compare to the group not taking the medicine.
In these studies, the most common side effects of sulfasalazine-delayed release included:
  • A loss of appetite
  • Headaches
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • A reversible low sperm count in men. 

Rare Side Effects

Other sulfasalazine delayed-release side effects occur less frequently. Because these side effects are so rare, it is difficult to tell whether they are because of the medication or something else.
These side effects include but are not limited to:
  • Vertigo (a spinning sensation)
  • Insomnia
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
  • Drowsiness
  • Skin discoloration
  • Urine discoloration.

Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking the drug. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect of sulfasalazine delayed-release, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
