Sulfasalazine Pills

Sulfasalazine (Azulfidine®) is a prescription drug used for the treatment of mild-to-moderately active ulcerative colitis. It is generally taken three to six times a day. A delayed-release form of the medicine is also available; it is approved for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.
 
Sulfasalazine comes in the form of tablets (pills) that can be taken with or without food. However, doses should be taken at the same times each day to keep an even level of the medicine in the blood.
 
Most people tolerate sulfasalazine pills well, and if side effects do occur, they tend to be minor. In clinical studies, some of the most commonly reported side effects included nausea, reversible low sperm count in men, and loss of appetite.
