Sulfasalazine Indications

Sulfasalazine (Azulfidine®) is approved for the use of ulcerative colitis, an inflammatory bowel disease. This medication, which comes in tablet form, is generally taken anywhere from three to six times a day, depending on various factors.
 
Other indications (or uses) for sulfasalazine are technically unapproved and are known as "off-label" uses. For example, prescribing this medication to treat Crohn's disease is an off-label use. This does not mean that a healthcare provider is wrong to recommend a drug in this fashion; it just means that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not formally licensed that medicine for that purpose.
