Mesalamine is used to treat mild to modest ulcerative colitis. Mesalamine is also used to avoid the symptoms of ulcerative colitis from recurring. Some brands of mesalamine are for use only in adults, and some brand names are for use in children who are at least 5 years of ages. Mesalamine might additionally be used for objectives not detailed in this medicine guide. Quit using mesalamine and call your medical professional simultaneously if you have severe stomach pain, stomach cramping, bloody looseness of the bowels. It is not understood whether mesalamine will harm unborn infant. Having unrestrained or untreated ulcerative colitis during maternity might cause problems such as low birth weight or early birth. The benefit of treating ulcerative colitis may outweigh any threats to the baby. Tell your medical professional if you notice looseness of the bowels in the nursing infant if you are nursing. Do not give this medication to a child without clinical recommendations. Take Asacol HD on an empty stomach, at least 1 hour before or 2 hrs after a dish. You may take Apriso with or without food. Other brands of mesalamine can be taken with or without food. Open it and sprinkle the medication into a dose of yogurt or applesauce if you can not ingest a Pentasa pill whole. If you find undissolved mesalamine tablets in your stool, tell your doctor. Call your doctor if your ulcerative colitis symptoms do not improve, or if they worsen. You might need regular blood tests to check your blood cells or kidney function.
